Notes & Reviews:

The Accademia Bizantina under the direction of Ottavio Dantone returns to Decca with this new recording of Haydn's symphonies nos. 78-81. This album includes the first ever recordings on period instruments for symphonies 79 & 81.

Daily Express
The Milan-based Accademia Bizantina prove that they are the rightly acclaimed specialists in such period music.

Early Music Today, August 2016
[Symphony No. 80] sounds close to a masterpiece on this fine two-CD set by Ottavio Dantone and Accademia Bizantina. Their lithe performances of all four symphonies, purposeful yet sensitive, are among the best available... the rarely recorded no. 81 comes across as another near- masterpiece, helped by Dantone's subtle shaping of its dynamic outer movements and his tender handling of the Andante's charming siciliano variations.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
[Dantone] is a master of pacing, driving finales with assurance, managing gear-changes with ease... Accademia Bizantina play excellently, responding with quick ensemble and sinewy strength to Dantone's interpretational demands.

The Guardian, 2nd March 2016
Dantone's performances are models of historical good taste. There's no harpsichord continuo - still a divisive issue among Haydn interpreters - and with just 15 strings, textures are buoyant and transparent...Dantone's touch is always light, and the performance always comes before the scholarship informing it.
