Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although Haydn's operas are rarely performed today, many of them were incredibly popular during the composer's lifetime. They were frequently performed far beyond the reach of the affluent Esterhaza court, for which they were penned. The subject matter ranges from dark, supernatural productions, to light-hearted escapades. In one such story, a character is fooled into thinking he is on the moon. The overtures featured here display Haydn's talent and flair, condensing the emotions of the operas as a whole.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
The woodwind offer sweet commentaries and the horns... ring out joyfully... there's not a duff note here and, despite the odd string lapse, not a moment that isn't an utterly joyful account of Haydn's wit and wisdom.
