Minor concerns regarding textual matters are insignificant when these performances are so refreshingly alive to the spirit of Haydn. Beecham famously declared that musicologists were, if I recollect the quote correctly, "people who could read music but couldn't hear it", and these elegant performances magically capture the essence of each symphony, with that unique Beecham geniality that makes these readings so valuable. The sound holds out very well for the period.
I am cross referencing this review to the companion set that makes up this complete cycle. Symphonies 93 to 98 in this volume are well balanced mono recordings from 1957/58 but reproduce excellently.
