Notes & Reviews:

"The virtues of Colin Davis' Concertgebouw Haydn recordings are well known: judicious tempos, excellent playing (particularly from the wind soloists), and stylish phrasing even in quick movements. It's also very nice to see Symphony No. 88 on CD after so many years in the discographic wilderness... In multichannel format, the engineers capture plenty of room ambiance with no loss of clarity or excessive rear-channel emphasis." -Classics Today

The Telegraph
Recorded in modern stereo sound, Colin Davis and the magnificent Royal Concertgebouw are equally moving in the Largo (Haydn Symphony No. 89), keeping the music poised between hymn and celestial dance...With its warmth, exuberance and pungency of detail, this is a modern-instrument Haydn at its finest.
