Haydn Symphonies No. 49 and No. 87

COR16168

£7.99

Album Description

The Handel and Haydn Society presents one of Haydn’s early Sturm und Drang (storm and stress) symphonies- No. 49 in F minor, more commonly known as ‘La Passione’ because of its dark, brooding penitential adagio. Symphony No. 87, the last of six masterly ‘Paris’ Symphonies, displays Haydn’s astonishing craftsmanship and, along with symphonies 82-86, were the first symphonies since the Sturm und Drang days. The Paris Symphonies blended an approachable and popular style with an inventiveness and broad emotional range that revealed new possibilities in what was still a relatively youthful genre. Completing the programme is Mozart’s elegiac and richly beautiful Sinfonia Concertante performed by H+H’s inspirational concertmaster, Aisslinn Nosky and viola player Max Mandel.

Reviews

'The Adagio is a hymnlike being that showcases Boston's wonderful woodwind soloists, while the rustic Minuet provides a characteristically Haydnesque contrast with the nervy, monothematic finale.'  Gramophone
