Notes & Reviews:

"This album by the Canadian early music ensemble Arion, led by the talented harpsichordist/fortepianist Gary Cooper, returns listeners to the time of Papa Haydn by using the proportions of instruments that Haydn himself would have used. Despite their small numbers, there is absolutely nothing small about Arion's sound, and their tone is as full and rich as an orchestra many times its size. The ensemble plays with remarkable technical precision, from the crisp, well-articulated strings to the clear, stratospherically-high playing of the horns in Symphony 41... Immediately enjoyable to everyone from novice listeners to those who think they've already heard all that Haydn has to offer, this disc is unreservedly recommended." -All Music Guide
