Overview

The companion volume for EMI's reissued two-disc set of Thomas Beecham and the Royal Philharmonic late-'50s recordings of Haydn's later "London Symphonies," this two-disc set of Haydn's earlier "London Symphonies" is every bit as fine in every way, thereby making it practically perfect in every way. The playing of the Royal Philharmonic is colorful and immediately responsive to Beecham. Beecham himself is at the peak of his form: stylish, larger-than-life, deeply human, and wonderfully witty. Lawrence Collingswood captures their performances in warm, clear, and vividly colorful sound. And, of course, Haydn's earlier "London Symphonies" are the absolute height of the Viennese High Classical Style: graceful, elegant, tasteful, tuneful, colorful, profoundly musical, and as good and deep and true as the greatest music ever written by anyone anywhere at anytime. Everyone who loves great music will love these discs.
