The three symphonies dating from the early 1780s make an attractive group, characteristically lively in outer movements but each with slow movements involving the use of mysterious muted strings. Müller-Brühl, as in his other Haydn recordings, favours broad adagios and Minuets that retain the idea of a stately dance. Yet the freshness and rhythmic resilience never fail to bring the performances to life. Like its companions, an excellent recommendation.
