Notes & Reviews:

2009 marked the two-hundredth anniversary of Haydn's death. Among the greatest interpreters of this composer is certainly Hermann Scherchen who recorded twenty-one of his symphonies, including all the London symphonies, mainly for the American label Westminster. Several of these recordings have become famous. In his version of the 88th, Scherchen adopts a very slow tempo, so slow that it takes him four minutes more than Furtwangler who didn't count among the rapid conductors. Another sensation at the time was his recording of the Farewell Symphony in which, in the last movement, the musicians leave the stage one after the other, saying out aloud, "Auf Wiedersehen" while the sound of the orchestra also becomes progressively softer.
