Reviews

‘The “Farewell” is downright revelatory in terms of that frequently misjudged work’s substance and depth … [No.48] is irresistibly attractive in DG’s splendidly open sound … there cannot be more than a handful of Haydn symphony records from any source as stimulating and pleasurable as this one.’ Stereo Review

‘A few more recordings like this could make us forget that Barenboim started out as one of our most promising young pianists … These performances are crisp and bright, and the attendant clarity is achieved with seeming ease… Highly recommended.’ Fanfare
