Notes & Reviews:

A CD in C major - Haydn at his most festive! But Haydn would not be Haydn if he failed to include a few humorous digressions and surprises. For example, in the famous Symphony No. 48, nicknamed "Maria Theresa" - one of the composer's most dramatic scores in the key - Haydn called high-pitched C-alto horns and drums - to commemorate the visit of Empress Maria Theresa to Eszterhaza in 1773. Similarly, the C Major Symphony No. 56 is a magnificent piece, which, like No. 48, calls for C-alto horns and drums in addition to some comic and grotesque writing for the bassoon. In view of the musical demands of these pieces, it is clear that Haydn's orchestra consisted of well-trained, excellent musicians indeed. In this instance, the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra is no different!

Gramophone Magazine
Thomas Fey knows the sort of impact Haydn's symphonies must have made when they were first heard and he clearly wants to recreate that excitement...It's certainly exciting, even if it's not authentic...Few recordings of the Maria Theresia match this one for sheer joie de vivre
