Notes & Reviews:

The four symphonies included on this recording date from an early period of Haydn's career, when he was experimenting with a newly developing form. Nos. 18-20 were written around 1759 when Haydn had his first steady employment as music director to Count Morzin. 'Symphony No. 21 in A major' dates from c. 1761 when Haydn entered the service of the Esterhazy family. Scored for oboes, horns, strings, and continuo, all four works are characteristically inventive. 'Symphony No. 20 in C major', is unusually scored for additional trumpets and timpani.
