Spirited readings of three lovely Haydn symphonies.

In their different ways, the three symphonies on this recording show something of Haydn's experimental inclinations during the period in which they were written (the earliest being composed in 1767 and the latest in 1776). Among the hallmarks are sometimes an exaltation of vivid effect at the expense of formal and harmonic fluidity: dynamic contrasts are heightened, harmonic progressions emboldened, rhythms teased. There is growing contrapuntal sophistication, too, and in one movement each section is to be played both forward and backward.

Review:
"The disc from Albany gives us three lesser-known Haydn symphonies; none is exceptional, but all display the craftsmanship, the variety, and the unexpected moments we expect from the Esterhazy master. Scott Cantrell explains every turn in thorough, engaging notes....The playing has lilt and spirit." (Fanfare)
