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.
