Peter Branscombe
Early Music America, December 2005

The latest volume in the Naxos series takes us back to the very beginnings of the classical symphony with Haydn’s earliest essays in the medium, where each new attempt was in the nature of an experiment – a sense certainty brought out in these discerning, affectionate readings. The accompanying folder (English and German) has brief notes on the works and their performers; the recording has plenty of presence. Stylish playing, with poise and vigour – and a lively, occasionally over-busy realization of the harpsichord continuo from Irina Zahharenkova. Patrick Gallois secures alert and sensitive playing from the Sinfonia Finlandia, though the strings are stretched in the scurrying figuration to a valuable series.
