EMI reissued Simon Rattle's sparkling Haydn CD a few years back. The 1994 recordings hold up well in terms of both artistry and sound compared to the competition from intervening years. Here is another reminder why young Simon Rattle was the first Englishman selected to lead the Berlin Philharmonic once Claudio Abbado called it quits.

Rattle's Haydn is period-influenced and rapid in pace, making it exhilirating in tutti and not quite the genteel hand Bruno Walter brought to the music. The three selections here -- Symphony 22 "The Philosopher" from the composer's early period; the magnificent Symphony 86 from the "Paris" symphonies; and the late, great Symphony 102 from the "London" period -- show three faces of the composer that essentially invented and went on to perfect the symphony format.

Of these selections, the signature performance is No. 86, my favorite among all 104 Haydn symphonies. A pair of dynamic outer movements shield a lovely capriccio and minuet with trio in what is, I believe, the greatest of all Haydn's later symphonies. The final movement, in particular, is cherishable. With its dominant exposition that culminates in a rising woodwind choir first matched by strings, echoed by lower strings in the right speaker, then bursting into full tutti...well, I defy you not to hum along, toe tap or even jump out of your seat in Rattle's performance during either the opening, the repeat or the closing statement in the final movement.

Kudos to the City of Birmingham Symphony and its wind section, which is the most important part of the orchestra is all three symphonies. The mistake some Haydn interpreters make is confusing Haydn with the later Beethoven, and insisting on voicing the temperate Haydn as if he were the first coming of the intemperate Beethoven.

Symphony #22 is worth the whole album: it was composed, as I understand, during an 'experimental' period of Haydn's life. The first movement's opening English horn solo - along with the French horns - is my favorite part. The second movement gets my foot to tapping along, every time. The other movements also make me want to dance.

Fair dinkum, my expectations as I approached this disc were lower than shark poop. After all, Symphonies Nos 88-92: Concertante is a monumental "cluster-fornication" (check out Doug Haydn-Fan's review - that's how to apply Rule 303). There, Rattle's servility to the Period Practice Taliban is exacerbated by his trademark-fussiness and a skeletonised, freeze-dried, Klang-less Berlin Philharmonic. Even Satan, from what I've heard, condemned Rattle's trivialisation of the slow introduction of the Oxford. When I was recently afforded a chance to hear the combo live in Sydney in Haydn's 99th (alas, of all things), I hid under the bed with Big Oscar, the factory-fitted male labrador! It was a night I care not to remember.

Much to my surprise and relief, his earlier effort from '96 is no atrocity. Indeed, it's enjoyable. Symphony No. 86 is a masterpiece; only the lack of an epithet prevents Symphony 102 from receiving the accolade that is deserves whereas the Philosopher is a pocket-rocket. All three warrant scale, power and dignity. These, they receive in turn from Rattle and the CBSO. Indeed, I was taken aback at times by the torque on display - good stuff. Rattle is not cutesy. Only the shrillness of the violins (above the stave) in 86 / 1 and the relative lack of magic in the dream-like slow movement of 102 militate a full recommendation. The recording is excellent.

We have spent and spent and spent and sooner or later we have to pay. No exemption is afforded to Sir Simon. This is exculpatory.
