Like Barry Wordsworth’s recordings of Mozart symphonies, with the Capella Istropolitana on the Naxos label, this Haydn collection provides a series of outstanding bargains at the lowest budget price. The sound is not quite as clean and immediate as in the Mozart series, a little boomy at times in fact, and Wordsworth’s preference for relatively relaxed speeds is a little more marked here than in Mozart, but the varied choice of works on each disc is most attractive. At their modest cost, these are well worth collecting.



BBC Radio 3

"That version conducted by Barry Wordsworth is the super-bargain of this review."



Fanfare

"...must compete with the Concertgebouw under Colin Davis... the best buy of any Haydn CD I've heard. Get it!"



Penguin Guide

"...well worth collecting."
