4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Survey of Haydn's Concertos May 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The Haydn concertos don't enjoy the popularity of the composer's symphonies, quartets or choral works. Only the Trumpet Concerto, two of the Cello Concertos, the Horn Concerto and one or two of the Keyboard Concertos are widely known. Received wisdom holds that most of these pieces are ignored because they lack the true virtuosic solo writing that other composers achieved in their concertos, and that is certainly a true observation. But it's also too bad, because many of Papa's concertos contain much fine and enjoyable music, even if no one would mistake a Haydn piano concerto for one of Mozart's late Viennese masterpieces.

Naxos does us a great service with this release, bringing together mostly sparkling performances of all the concertos in one attractive, budget-priced box. Music historians haven't definitively determined which Haydn Concertos are authentic and which are spurious, so don't expect this selection to include exactly the same material as rival sets. For reference, here's what you get (where instruments named in the []'s are those used in these performances):

Disc 1: 3 Violin Concertos, in D (Hob.VIIa:1), in A (Hob.VIIa:3), in G (Hob.VIIa:4);
Disc 2: Horn Concerto, in D (Hob.VIId:3); Keyboard [Harpsichord] Concerto, in D (Hob.XVIII:2); Violin and Keyboard [Fortepiano] Concerto, in F (Hob.XVIII:6); and Trumpet Concerto, in E Flat (Hob.VIIe:1);
Disc 3: 3 Cello Concertos, in D (Hob.VIIb:2); in D (Hob.VIIb:4); and in C (Hob.VIIb:1);
Disc 4: 4 Keyboard [Pianoforte] Concertos, in F (Hob.XVIII:3); in D (Hob.XVIII:11); in G (Hob.XVIII:4); and in G (Hob.XVIII:9);
Disc 5: 5 Keyboard Concertos, in C (Hob.XVIII:1) [Organ]; in C (Hob.XVIII:5) [Harpsichord]; in C (Hob.XVIII:8) [Organ]; in F (Hob.XVIII:7) [Harpsichord]; and in C (Hob.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exploring the Haydn Concertos on Naxos October 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
For most music lovers, Haydn's concertos do not occupy a particularly high place in his large output. Most of the concertos are early works written for specific occasions rather than for broad, repeated performances. These early concertos generally lack the virtuosity and brilliance found in the concerto form. They tend to lack drama. With that said, there is no need to be discouraged from exploring this six-CD collection of Haydn's complete concertos available on the budget-priced Naxos label. Helmut Muller-Bruhl conducts the Cologne Chamber Orchestra on modern instruments together with a variety of soloists in these recordings. Most of his readings of the concertos are in a period-informed style. The set of concertos is part of a lengthy series of Haydn's complete works in several genres, including symphonies (many of which are performed by Muller-Bruhl and his orchestra), string quartets, piano sonatas, oratorios, and masses, that Naxos has released in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Haydn's death (1732 - 1809). I have been listening to many recordings of Haydn's music this year, including these concertos, as part of my personal celebration of Haydn. His music is indeed inexhaustible.

Haydn's music is always delightful and accessible, even when he is not at his best. This set offers the opportunity to explore both familiar and unfamiliar music and to hear how Haydn developed as a composer. The concertos begin with some of Haydn's earliest compositions from the 1750s, and, they conclude with a work of Haydn's greatest maturity following his two visits to London. In addition, these concertos include a small number of masterworks, including the trumpet concerto, two concertos for cello, and the D major piano concerto.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concertos to entertain you September 10, 2012
By Tero
Format:Audio CD
Effortless playing by a Cologne orchestra.

The recorded sound is good here, so I cannot tell much difference. I have heard the piano concertos done on pianoforte with the period sound.

The piano concertos are something I was familiar with, as well as the famous trumpet concerto. All three authentic ones are here plus one "attributed" one in G. Sebastian Knauer does an OK job on the piano. Quick movements are standard, the adagios and largos a bit slower than I am used to.

The booklet that comes with it covers all of the Naxos Haydn catalog, so you have to look for the Concerto tab for the 6 discs you get. A nice section of mini bios of the performers at the end.

Recommended.
