Hickox and his musicians are equally fine in this first volume and the second volume. Here the introductory percussive fanfare in "Drumroll" sets the stage for an energetic performance. "London" shines throughout with the same energy. And the cello solo in No. 95 really has an authentic presence. These performances have a real punch to them: part of it has to do with the sound the original instruments make together. Christopher Hogwood's "Surprise" is my all-time favorite Haydn performance. These are very close. Hickox inspires his performers, and the acoustics capture the inspiration. Altogether it's a pleasing homage to the jovial spirit and sweet purity of Haydn's music.

I agree completely with the previous reviewer. In a word, these performances, especially that of the "Drum Roll," are absolutely boisterous. From the opening drum tattoo to the end of the first movement of 103, where Hickox seems practically to be throwing the sound of the various sections of the orchestra (mostly the brass!) out at the listener, this performance seems to capture the spirit of the composer perfectly. There's nothing metronomic about the conducting, nothing precious about the highly musical manipulation of dynamics, and nothing timid about any of the contributions of the musicians in any of the three symphonies. And nothing at all dreary about the minor-key #95--and how often can you say that? Forget all your negative impressions of wiry strings and out of tune winds in the so-called "historically informed performances" you might have heard. Hickox and his crack orchestra deliver the real deal.
