With volume 5, Nimbus Records is one volume away from completing the entire collection of Haydn symphonies. Again, Adam Fischer conducts the Austo-Hungarian Haydn Orchestra and delivers a truly amazing listening experience.
When I began my quest for a complete Haydn symphony collection, there were a few options. But this collection won out and I have not been disappointed with any of the volumes. Every CD is fully digital, from the recording to the mastering process. They are technically flawless.
I don't profess to be a musical scholar so I cannot comment on the conducting, or the playing. I won't rant on about the choice to use modern instruments to play Haydn.
All I will say is that I love music and that this volume, like the others in the collection are joy to listen to.
In case you are wondering, according to Nimbus Records, the entire set should be finished sometime in October of 2001 - concluding with Volume 2.

Format: Audio CD
I had been unfamiliar with some of these dozen symphonies until hearing these versions. I would rank them in descending order as follows: 75, 73, 70, 80, 81, 78,77, 76, 74, 72, 71, 79. The performances are again excellent with the same virtues as displayed in #s 40-54: energy, great tempi (no strolling in third movements), some scattered faux ripieno solo/duo strings, good winds, lack of periodicity.

The biggest surprise: #75- big, majestic, thrilling (where was it/I?). The fame of #73 is well earned and
performed, though I prefer Marriner's ASMF version. #70 is also too litle known- four fine movements. #78 I knew from the Orpheus and Somogyi versions. (70+ 78 are serious minor key specials // 39, 45, 49, 52 et al.
#72 is an earlier work despite its numbering, similar to Haydn's great #31 as a semi Sinfonia Concertante but not quite as good. 80 and 81 are
very good- Fischer and Mackerras both perform it well. I am least attracted to #79, which is not the fault of Fischer or Orpheus. In short, another fine box.
Peers: Orpheus (77, 78, 79, 80, 81), Marriner (73), Sieghart (75), Somogyi (78), Leppard (70 and 77), Mackerras (80 and 81). Two that I would like to hear: Wand's #76 and Kegel's #81
