Notes & Reviews:

Manfred Huss and the period orchestra Haydn Sinfonietta Wien are internationally acclaimed for their rousing performances of music by Haydn and Schubert. They now bring their indomitable enthusiasm and collective expertise to one of Handel's most famous and popular works, rounding off the disc with the composer's far less well-known, but equally resplendent Overture from the Occasional Oratorio.

MusicWeb International, 18th November 2013
All the advantages of period instruments...with none of the hazards.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2014
The Haydn Sinfonietta Wien, led expertly by Simon Standage, play crisply and neatly: amiable horns and oboes chuckle in all the right places, the oboe-and-bassoon trios are moderately playful, and the trumpets and horns are splendid in the Hornpipe.
