Haydn: Symphonies No. 6 & No. 82

Haydn: Symphonies No. 6 & No. 82



Handel and Haydn Society

In Harry Christophers’ expert hands, Haydn comes to life in the first in a series of new live recordings from the Handel and Haydn Society. 

This disc showcases one of Haydn’s Paris Symphonies, L’ours (The Bear), a festive and jubilant work commissioned by a Parisian orchestra in the 1780s, as well as one of his earlier symphonies, No. 6 Le matin, which is characterised by unusual virtuoso writing across the orchestral ensemble. Completing the disc is Haydn’s Violin Concerto in G major performed by Handel and Haydn’s fiery and expressive Concertmaster, Aisslinn Nosky, who makes her solo debut on the CORO label.

'For the two symphonies alone, this recording is well worth having, especially as it offers as fine a tonal sound as I have ever heard in a recording of period instruments.' International Record Review

'This performance has all the attributes that display this music at its best.'  Gramophone
