Pinnock's recordings of Haydn's middle-period "Sturm und Drang" Symphonies (or "Storm and Stress," a term describing the turbulent, explosive impact of much of the music here) are real classics. It's great to have these late-1980's vintage performances in a neatly packaged box set -- 6 CDs in sturdy sleeves, packed in a nicely compact box.
The music is some of my favorite Haydn, and for those who think of the composer as something of a kindly old grandfather will be knocked over by this set. The music was revolutionary for its time: restless, probing, highly passionate and endlessly experimental. In many ways, I prefer the high tensions and bold imagination of these works to Haydn's more popular "Paris" and "London" Symphonies of his more mature years.
Pinnock and the New English Concert were one of the premier period ensembles of their time, and they do this incredible music proudly with alert, energetic performances. To top it off, the CD booklet compiles all of the excellent notes that were part of the original series.
If you're familiar with Haydn only through his later symphonies, this set is guaranteed to give you a different perspective on "Papa" Haydn -- now as an ambitious young man struggling to create something new and radically different, using a prince's orchestra as his laboratory. Fascinating and compelling.

I find myself turning to this modest box of 6 CDs containing 19 mostly little-known Haydn symphonies far more often than to any other Haydn symphony recordings on my shelf.

The complete cycles I own are certainly great achievements that I would never want to be without. Dorati's magnificent complete cycle (see Amazon asin # B0000042DP) is a classic that has stood the test of time. Brilliant classics has ressurected the Adam Fischer cycle from the Nimbus bankruptcy (see Amazon asin # B00006GA50), though the price is now much higher than it was when Brilliant Classics originally released it in 2002. For some of the more famous symphonies, like the London Symphonies, there are many stellar paerformances, such as the Colin Davis/Concertgebouw recordings available on 2 Philips Duo offerings.

But none of the above, or other unspecified recordings, hold a candle to these Pinnock recordings when it comes to an all around enjoyable musical experience. The Minuets have a swaggering quality that is intoxicating. You'd think Haydn invented dance music. Who needs the Strauss family? The Allegros have vitality about them that brings you to the edge of your seat. And the slower movements have phenomenal penetrating depth and wide ranging dynamics one would never expect from Haydn.

And unlike some critics, I don't think there is anything "unfaithful" to the score about these readings. Pinnock doesn't resort to Stokowski-like modifications or liberalities to make the music come alive. What does come across is that all of the musicians appear to be having fun. And when musicians are having fun like this, you do too.

And for the bargain basement price, this a must have.
Not a Haydn fan? Get this set and you will be.

This recording is one of my "desert island discs". I have listened to it over and over again over the last four years and I am still finding new and exciting things in this music. Haydn's symphonies are very important to me and I feel very at home in this music. Why? I am not sure. This is musical music - music which celebrates music. I realise that this doesn't make much sense. Mozart's symphonies are always very clever and always full of Mozart's brilliance and superb sense of style and form. Haydn's symphonies aren't "obvious" - they require a little more effort for someone like me to appreciate, and this is their strength - once this music is appreciated, it stays that way!

Mr. Trevor Pinnock, directing The English Concert [on period instruments] from his harpsichord, provides us with a wide window into these works - 19 symphonies, over 6 CDs. The playing is very attractive and colourful. The wind and brass players are in fine form, particularly the horn players. The strings have that transparency and incisiveness which period violins, violas, 'cellos and basses and original styled bows bring to 18th century music.

I can imagine a different approach and interpretation of some of these works, but I cannot imagine anyone doing it better than Pinnock and his ensemble.

If you're a fan of the "Sturm und Drang" style, although much of this music is far from stressful or stormy!, you will probably enjoy comparing these symphonies with those of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

This recording of Haydn is incredible. I have listened to it repeatedly, and it continues to amaze me. I would, therefore, commend this recording, confident others will love it as I have come to love it. Three things make this recording exceptional:

1) The recording quality is splendid. Having engineered and mastered a good many recitals and concerts, I have a good sense for what an excellent recording can sound like. Triple the pay for the producer and engineers of this recording! The balance between room and players is perfect, the sound clear yet warm, the depth of the ensemble pleasing. I appreciate the level of detail that conductor and producer have captured. The stereo soundstage is, in my opinion, perfect: the conductor has carefully placed instruments in a classical-period formation that features first violins to the left and second violins to the right, creating a marvelous effect when listened to with earphones. This enhances the clarity of the sound and brings out the subtle interplay of the parts.

2) This recording shines a light on a vital and rarely enjoyed portion of Haydn's symphonic corpus. I enjoy this collection every bit as much as I enjoy the masterpiece symphonies from the late London years, and, as a compilation of great variety, perhaps even more. With around six hours of listening time in total, I will be swimming in these symphonies for the next year!

3) The conductor's insights into these scores and the amazing musicality of the performers is "off the charts." To my ear, every structural aspect of these works, from the macro to the micro, has been meticulously attended to and well-executed. These are strings that can "change on a dime" -- the kind someone like me loves to conduct. Just the raise of an eyebrow and the players respond.
