The CD contains six of the London Symphonies, including the "Surprise", the "Clock" and the "Military", along with nos.93,97 and 99. Sir Colin takes a very measured approach, you might say taking no chances with tempi or interpretation. They are most beautiful performances and would be a great asset to any CD library. The nicknamed symphonies are all well known, but my favourite on this 2CD set is No.99 in E flat. Haydn,it seems to me, is always looking to give you a little bit of the unexpected and his humour and warm-heartedness shine through in these performances. Very good value and recommended listening.
