I can't wait to get home and listen to this disc again. It's totally surprising and original. I've enjoyed Fisher's other series of Haydn's London Symphonies on Nimbus, but with this it's apparent that Fisher has totally rethought his approach to Haydn. One can easily enjoy both series, almost as if they were from different conductors and orchestras. But this later series, enjoying the advantage of surround sound on SACD, has also benefited from the influence of the original instrument movement. Though they're evidently not using original instruments here, you get the clear textures that enable you to here the internal lines of the music, and the dynamics are astounding. The wit and jovial humor of the old prankster really come through, without missing any of the beauty of the music. I highly recommend it.
