Notes & Reviews:

"This set, recorded in concert in Vienna with a period instrument ensemble, is a pleasure to listen to...The playing here is in tune and polished. No scratches in the strings or honks in the winds. Balances are fine, with the transparency that the best old instrument groups achieve with ease...This set made me smile whenever I listened to it, which was more than enough for me...Well worth getting if you are in the market for these pieces."-American Record Guide

The Independent
Marc Minkowski's four-disc set with Les Musiciens du Louvre Grenoble exploits every nuance of the London Symphonies... This is the finest period instruments ensemble in the world.

The Guardian
Minkowski's orchestra is a period-instrument band, but a particularly well-upholstered one with a sizeable string section, so there is nothing undernourished about the sound, and the performances have real warmth and generosity about them. They are full of musical wit too

Gramophone Magazine
Here at last is a period recording that approximates the scale of the performances of the 1790s... there is every reason to regard this as a notable landmark in the Haydn discography.

Sunday Times
Minkowski and co celebrate Haydn's ever-astonishing originality in performances of brio and subtlety: their grandiose D major Symphony ("London") is the set's sublime apotheosis.

BBC Music Magazine
Marc Minkowski and his period-instrument band may be thought of as early music specialists, yet their approach is the reverse of doctrinaire... Those who feel they have heard some of these works rather too often will have their affection renewed by this lively set.

The Observer
A really fresh look at Haydn's masterpieces. Minkowski highlights the innocence of Haydn's beginnings, which then blossom into melodic flower (as in No 99's adagio), or erupt into contrapuntal passion (in the incandescent finale of No 95)... there is an overwhelming sense of excitement.
