If you are looking for a CD collection of Haydn's Complete Overtures, you don't have a choice.
To date, this is the only time it's been done.
Fortunately the performances are spirited and well-recorded.
Played by a chamber orchestra of approximately 35 players on modern instruments.
22 Overtures.

- Eleven overtures to Italian operas (one overture is speculative)
- Three overtures to German operas (one overture is speculative)
- Two concert overtures Hob Ia: 4 and 7
- Symphony fragment Hob I:106 (identified as overture to the Italian opera "Le Pescatrici")
- Five orchestral introductions to the oratorios.

When Anthony van Hoboken published his Haydn Vercheiznis in 1956, he assigned Hoboken numbers by category.
Hob I was "Symphonies".
There was also a category of Hob Ia, "Overtures": fourteen of which were excerpted from complete operas, which also had their own Hoboken numbers.
The booklet uses the Hob Ia numbers for these fourteen overtures - this is confusing as nearly every other recording uses the number assigned to the complete opera (Hob XXVIII = Italian Operas, Hob XXIX = German Operas).
The Hob Ia number really only makes sense for the two independent Concert Overtures, Hob Ia: 4 and 7.
In the list that follows, I have used the more commonly accepted Hoboken number, not the Hob Ia number.

You won't find these wonderful Haydn orchestral works together anywhere else. But, you might find each under different names or in different versions. Both the 1777 and 1784 versions of the "Overture in D major" are included. If you love Haydn, you need to get these CDs!
