Haydn Symphonies


Other than the obvious Dorati/Decca complete symphony set, which is uniformly excellent at budget price, what other Haydn symphony CDs are worth getting. I also have the budget price Davis/Phillips London symphony set, and the Kuijken/Virgin Paris symphony set. There are many other versions now as well as remastered older sets, what do other members recommend?

Try the various Scherchen renditions, which were originally issued on Westminister. He recorded a complete set of the London Symphonies as well as other individual works. His version of Symphony 44 in E minor, The Trauer, is an inspired presentation. Monteux offers two great performances of the Clock & Surprise on RCA. Happy listening.
