It's hard to believe that this CD is Volume 26 in the ongoing Haydn symphony series coming to us from Naxos. On this disc are three symphonies from 1768/69, composed back-to-back (in spite of their non-consecutive numbers).
The first of these, No. 41 in C major, is a celebratory piece that includes trumpets and drums, a rarity in Haydn. The four movements include an Allegro in 3/4 time, a little unusual, and with trumpet fanfaress and drum flourishes. The Andante surprisingly begins with muted strings - a nice touch - and then brings in a flowery solo flute; the trumpets and drums are tacit here. The Minuet has high horns, trumpets, drums framing a Trio that has elaborate horn calls. The Presto final movement is propelled by eighth-note triplets to a brilliant finish.
Symphony 58 in F has more usual scoring - strings, double oboes and horns, and a bassoon doubling the basses. The first movement Allegro is fairly standard sonata form in triple time again, like the first movement of the previous symphony. The Andante second movement is scored for strings alone. The Menuet alla zoppa ('lame menuet') is so-called because of the limping rhythm of the main tune; this is one of Haydn's most charming inventions, particularly with the lyrical Trio section. Yes! The Finale, with occasional musette effects, brings the whole to a bustling close.
Symphony 59 in A is nicknamed the 'Fire Symphony' because its movements were probably used as intermezzi during a dramatic presentation at the Eszterhazy palace theater. The name of the specific drama seems to be lost, but the epithet stuck to the symphony itself. For me the high point is the Menuet, again with a Trio for strings alone.
These performances, conducted by Helmut Muller-Bruhl, are played by the fine Cologne Chamber Orchestra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exploring the Haydn Symphonies -- Nos. 41,58,59 March 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you love music and wish to explore works beyond the handful of pieces in the standard repertoire there are two choices. First you may broaden your exposure to composers and periods that are unfamiliar. Second, you may deepen your understanding of composers or periods you love by exploring unfamiliar works.

Although it is best to combine the two approaches, I have been enjoying listening to some of the lesser-known symphonies of Haydn and sharing my experiences on this site with other listeners. It is a fertile field indeed with 104 numbered symphonies, most of which, fortunately, have been recorded several times. The CD I am discussing here is part of the ongoing Naxos cycle of the complete Haydn symphonies. Helmut Muller-Bruhl conducts the Cologne Chamber Orchestra in spirited performances of symphonies nos. 41, 58, and 59. These symphonies date from 1768 -- 1769, a period sometimes referred to as within Haydn's "strum and drang" period due to the several minor-key works or movements he wrote during this time such as the "Trauer" symphony, no. 44 and the "Farewell" symphony, no. 45. There is little of storm and stress in these three works. But they are full of lovely and innovative music.

Symphony no 41 in C major is a festive, fanfare symphony with prominent parts for trumpet and tympani. Haydn generally composed works of this form in C major. The most famous example is the "Maria Teresa" symphony, no. 48, composed at about the same time as no. 41. The work opens with a single large "Boom" in the stings followed by a soft answer. Listen for the false reprieve (a return of the opening "Boom!" and answer) shortly into the development section. Also, you can hardly miss the big drumbeats at the close of the movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars NO HALF-BAKED HAYDN December 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The symphonies of Franz Joseph Haydn are full of striking invention and stunning charm. He is sometimes criticized (much like Vivaldi's concertos) for repeating himself endlessly. Both these are of course totally unjustified! Haydn's style and framework are similar, but each one is sumptuous and unique from 1 to 104. No.41 is a particular favorite of mine, and is given an alluring performance here together with Nos 58 & 59. Papa Haydn rules! Great recording.
