This box set makes a very desirable set, well recorded and at a very attractive price point. The performances remain within the 'traditional' range which may be surprising to some, bearing in mind Harnoncourt's reputation as a 'period' conductor. Sleeve notes are non-existent but the recorded contents are of high quality and economically generous. I would suggest that the internet would be a ready source of relevant information should any be needed.

What we have here is a period conductor bringing his 'period' beliefs to bear upon a traditional orchestra of fair size, judging from the recording, and playing modern instruments. For many this will be the ideal compromise or solution as to whether to favour traditional or period performances. Harnoncourt later made an even finer set of the Paris symphonies with the same orchestra but with 'natural' brass replacing the modern, more powerful but less cutting, brass. This is a development that has become a popular middle course.

Harnoncourt, in these London symphonies, follows fairly traditional ideas of tempi, although generally on the quicker side of average. However, none of these speeds are in any way excessive and they can still be recognised as 'middle of the road.' Minuets are slightly slower than in many period aware performances and the trio sections also slow down a little more than might be expected.

When considering dynamics, on the other hand, while obviously observing accuracy throughout these performances, Harnoncourt takes maximum opportunities to create as much dynamic contrast as possible within the available range with the inevitable proportional increase of dramatic effect. This is a marked feature of this set.

Everybody who loves classical symphonies should own a set of Haydn's London symphonies. The merits of the different versions are reviewed in depth by more qualified listeners elsewhere, but for me, I believe that Harnoncourt brings his experience in conducting period bands playing authentic instruments to these recordings featuring a modern orchestra. Simply beautiful music which is well recorded too. The CDs are conveniently packaged in a neat cardboard box with cardboard sleeves.
