Marriner/ASMF display customary virtues here: suitable tempi, unsnailed third movements, flawless textures and
orchestral balance. Marriner stated that George Szell was his strongest pre-cursor , and that shows here in many positive ways but not others. On the former side are the qualities listed above plus refreshingly
quick tempi in outer movements, great winds, and unrushed second movements. But some deep feeling inherent in these scores is less than fully mined/dramatized, especially both first movement introductions, the trio of
102/3, and both second movements (#99's I consider even greater than 102's and one of Haydns Adagio pinnacles).
Marriner is within sight of the summit, flag in hand, after an honorable climb.

Peers : #99: Jochum/LPO/DG; Tate/ECO/EMI; Kubelik/BRSO/Orfeo; Davis/RCOA/Philips; Szell/Sony
#102: Jochum/DG; Tate/EMI; Davis/Philips; Klemperer/PO/EMI; Leitner/Bamberg

Verified Purchase
Deciding to expand upon my classical music collection by checking out Haydn, I picked up a set of 4 London symphonies. I later found out there were two missing from a series of 6 and found this CD had those 2 on it. Well, it was a lucky find because Marriner's performance of these symphonies is fantastic! I will certainly seek out more by him in the orchestral field.
The symphonies themselves are fine products of the classical period. Haydn's later symphonies tend to be for larger ensembles than his main body of work, and these are full and bombastic. Not quite up to Beethoven's more dramatic works, but probably equal to Beethoven's lesser symphonies (which are still pretty fantastic).
