4.0 out of 5 stars Serenity beneath the Frivolity., 21 Sept. 2013
By 
This review is from: Haydn: Symphony No 88; no.89, No 92 (Audio CD)
The Symphonies represented on this disc highlight Haydn's musical greatness,
and, in the case of No.88 his genius.
This Symphony begins with a movement marked 'Adagio-Allegro'.
This beginning is typical noble Haydn: slow then lively with the whole
orchestra engaging in a movement which serves as an ideal prelude to the
serenity which is to follow in the second movement.
In this movement cellos and violins are at one in rapturous harmony.
And, from now on, all instruments intertwine within the movement's
basic theme creating a situation of simple, yet perfect musical
fulfillment.
After a breezy third movement marked 'Menuett. Allegretto',
we arrive at the famous last movement. The title of which
'Finale. Allegro con spirito', is totally justified and is
a fitting conclusion to a great if somewhat undervalued
Classical Symphony.

Symphonies 89 and 92 serve as good choices to fill the disc,
and on the whole the recordings on offer here are, despite their
age, a must for any collector of Classical Symphonies.
