Review of Haydn26 - Heidelberger Sinfoniker published on 27 June 2022
Johannes Klumpp, conductor
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809):
Symphony No 107
Symphony No 11
Symphony No 32
Symphony No 15
Recorded in July 2020 at Palatin Wiesloch, Germany.
The chronological journey through Haydn's surviving symphonies, which began with Vol 25, continues with Symphony No 107. Composed around 1760/61, this is a work from Haydn's early days, before his time at Esterházy Palace. It was undoubtedly commissioned by Count Morzin - Haydn's employer at the time. This CD is a 'journey with Haydn' from his time in the service of Count Morzin to his days at Esterházy. Symphony No 15 marks his arrival at this destination.
