the sound of complacency,
By A Customer
This review is from: Haydn: London Symphonies, Vol.1 (Audio CD)
Beautiful, manicured sounds that trot along at "sensible" speeds and add up to...not very much. Jochum, Bernstein and Woldike have all made late Haydn a living, vibrant experience. Look elsewhere.

Not sure what you've got in your ears, cottage cheese maybe. The two Davis/Concertgebouw sets are pretty much widely accepted as the definitive interpretations. Others, ignore this review. (S)he's a numpty.

Come off it "A customer"! Every time one of these symphonies is discussed on BBC's "Building a Library" I wait for the inevitable recommendation of Davis as the library choice. These recordings are classics of the gramophone and very good value at their present price. But there is always a dissenting voice.
