Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The songs on this CD all resulted from a dinner in Vienna on December 1790. Haydn, Mozart and the violinist and impresario Salomon were discussing Haydn's trip to London. It was on this trip that Haydn became friendly with Anne Hunter, a talented poet, and wife of the eminent surgeon John Hunter. She was a friend of Walpole, and soon Haydn was in the 'polite society' of London. Anne either supplied the text, or selected texts by other writers, especially Shakespeare. This was a happy time in Haydn's life, and the songs are heartfelt, and emotional, foreshadowing the romanticism of Schubert, and reflecting possibly the romantic attachments the composer had made in London. This new recording features one of the most famous and beloved of all early-music sopranos, Emma Kirkby.

"Kirkby's intelligent mastery with words and gift for intimate story-telling are tailor-made for these Haydn miniatures" -Gramophone Magazine
