4.0 out of 5 stars Charming, 5 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Haydn Experience (Audio CD)
This would be an excellent compilation to introduce yourself or others to the pinnacle of Classical elegance, refinement, joy and wit. A good combination of orchestral, chamber and choral works, the two discs contain selections from larger works which of course would ideally be listened to in their fullest, but the selection is well done, reflecting Haydn's career, diversity and some of his finest moments. The booklet contains a nice biography of the composer, nothing elaborate. The performances are first class, mostly led by Nikolaus Harnoncourt. My only gripe is that although when imported into iTunes the track names are all intact, the performers' names are not there in every track (substituted with 'Various Artists') and on the second disc the name of the album is even spelled 'The Haydn Eperience'. This is sloppy but won't affect you if you don't intend to listen on your computer. I spent about a half hour cleaning it all up; luckily full performer information is given in the CD booklet.
Recommended as a great overview of a greater composer.
