Format: Audio CD
Its amazing to see how good are some of Naxos records.Some records of Haydn Symphonies are specialy good. But the records conducted by Bela Drahos are more than good. They are superb. His recordings of Nos 31 ( Hornsignal) , 71 in B flat, 73 ( La Chasse) , 90 in C Major and 86 ( one of the Paris Symphonies) are even superior than that of Antal Dorati.All these recordings Drahos did with the Nicolaus Esterházy Sinfonia, one Chamber Orchetra formed in 1992 from members of important hungarian orchestras . Now, Drahos is recording with another fantastic group: The Swedish Chamber Orchestra. The sonorities are diferent. More virtuosistic . More refined in tune. The result is outstanding. Here we have three seldom performed Symphonies sounding so well that we ask ourselves: why are these Symphonies so rarely played? Maybe, for the No 51 , the reason is the difficult French Horn solo part, here splendidly played by Bengt Oleras.
Three masperpieces of Haydn. In Magnificent readings. And with this price. Don't think twice....

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Robin Friedman HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 7, 2006
Format: Audio CD
Haydn's symphonies 50 -- 52 are chronologically and numerically in the middle of his 104 numbered symphonies and date from between 1771 -1773. These three works, close in time, show Haydn, in his never-ending inventiveness, composing in a variety of styles. Thus symphony no. 50 is a fanfare, celebratory work, symphony no. 51 is quirky and idiosyncratic, and symphony no. 52 is an austure work in a minor key. In this recording of relatively little-heard works Bela Drahos conducts the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. The CD is part of an ongoing cycle of the complete Haydn symphonies on the budget Naxos label. I enjoy hearing these symphonies on a disk-by-disk basis, which allows me to focus on each work, rather than as part of a complete set.

The first two movements of Symphony no 50 in C major probably were composed initially as music for a marionette opera at Esterhazy with Haydn adding the final two movements later to form the complete symphony. The work may well have been performed for the Empress Maria Theresa upon a visit to Esterhazy. The work is festive, as are most of Haydn's C major symphonies, with important parts for trumpet and tympani. The first movemement opens with a slow, maestoso introduction with large, accented chords followed by a lively, celebratory allegro. The graceful slow movement is comprised by a flowing theme in the strings to which the oboes contribute near the end. The minuet contrasts a stately, angular main theme with a legato trio, featuring a sweet oboe solo in the instrument's upper register. The quick finale contrasts lively, hushed and running passages with brusquer, louder passages and with large concluding chords.

Symphony no 51 in B-flat major is one of Haydn's lesser-known symphonies.

I am a lover of Haydn's work, and currently have at least one recording of all 104 symphonies. The other version I had of Symphony No. 51, is not a well performed work. It was a very inexpensive CD on a discount bin in a local store. I purchased THIS recording hoping the performance was better. In fact it's quite good. Recording quality is high, and performance is bright and organized. It is an active work and comes across as such. I am very pleased with this recording. Truthfully, I have not yet listened to Nos. 50 & 52, although I certainly will.

Thanks

I had no idea that Haydn composed such a wild and difficult piece for 2 horns in his 51st symphony!
