Poor Papa Haydn!Always in the shadow of W.A.M. He is at last getting the recognition he deserves.This is a splendid treasure trove, full of memorable music, very well played and with exceptionally fine sound - totally natural and very well balanced.The famous Trumpet Concerto is very good as is the Double Concerto.The artist are not "A" list players but you would never know! At the Naxos price this box is probably destined to be the find of the Haydn Anniversary.

Format: Audio CD
For most music lovers, Haydn's concertos do not occupy a particularly high place in his large output. Most of the concertos are early works written for specific occasions rather than for broad, repeated performances. These early concertos generally lack the virtuosity and brilliance found in the concerto form. They tend to lack drama. With that said, there is no need to be discouraged from exploring this six-CD collection of Haydn's complete concertos available on the budget-priced Naxos label. Helmut Muller-Bruhl conducts the Cologne Chamber Orchestra on modern instruments together with a variety of soloists in these recordings. Most of his readings of the concertos are in a period-informed style. The set of concertos is part of a lengthy series of Haydn's complete works in several genres, including symphonies (many of which are performed by Muller-Bruhl and his orchestra), string quartets, piano sonatas, oratorios, and masses, that Naxos has released in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Haydn's death (1732 - 1809). I have been listening to many recordings of Haydn's music this year, including these concertos, as part of my personal celebration of Haydn. His music is indeed inexhaustible.

Haydn's music is always delightful and accessible, even when he is not at his best. This set offers the opportunity to explore both familiar and unfamiliar music and to hear how Haydn developed as a composer. The concertos begin with some of Haydn's earliest compositions from the 1750s, and, they conclude with a work of Haydn's greatest maturity following his two visits to London. In addition, these concertos include a small number of masterworks, including the trumpet concerto, two concertos for cello, and the D major piano concerto.

Like other reviewers, my view on Haydn is as a great composer of symphonies and string quartets, rather than as a composer of concertos. His trumpet concerto can be argued to be the greatest concerto ever written, but the rest - or so I believed - consisted of a couple of cello concertos (the CD set actually contains three), and about a CD's worth of OK violin concertos and another of OK piano concertos, all listenable rather than anything special. In much the same way as Mozart's concertos are the works of genius while most of his syphonies are no more than good, that observation seems to apply to Haydn in reverse.

Well, I am not going to argue that this CD set reverses that jusgement. Apart from the trumpet concerto, no work in the set remotely challenges Mozart's great concertos for brilliance. But I got quite enormous pleasure from this collection and have no hesitation in giving the set the maximum 5 stars. The works are all given good clean performances, and the booklet (actually a complete discussion of Haydn's symphonies, piano sonatas, and string quartets as well as his concertos)is as good as any CD accompaniment I have seen.

The works that were new to me, e.g. some for woodwind and non-piano keyboard, were all refreshingly played. As were the violin and piano concertos that I had heard before. The whole experience was one long source of musical pleasure. The set is hardly expensive, and beautifully presented as well as beautifully played, and I heartily recommend the set.

Haydn - we think - is "half Hungarian" having spent so much time in Hungary composing wonderful music for the Eszterhazys. It's easier to meet his music on the radio,than some others' but I never heard all his concertos in full and this collection is simply excellent. The accompanying brochure is interesting and I'm sure I will listen to Haydn's music again and again for a long time.

Most of the music on these discs was unknown to me & I expect to many. The piano pieces suffer by comparison with Mozart (& Haydn's symphonies) but that's not to say that they aren't full of charm & original composition. The organ pieces aren't up to Handel but they're worth hearing more than once.
A booklet is supplied which describes the complete symphonies (definitely worth buying), the string quartets & the piano sonatas. So, it's quite bulky & contains matter not relevant to this CD set. It's well written (in English only) with player biographies & more than brief but less than comprehensive notes on the various pieces.
The soloists & the Cologne Chamber Orchestra give it their all, which is very good & make these attractive compositions sparkle.
Haydn wrote Opera as well.
Count Esterhazy was well served by his Kapellmeister & it's wonderful that we too can benefit from these CDs.
Buy this set, it's not overpriced, the performances are good & you will hear some pieces that are worth bringing back into the daylight.
