Symphonies 88 & 99 - Joseph Haydn (a Paris, and a London, Symphony - 9500 138)

£4.99

Product description

(featuring the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, conducted by Colin Davis).

During the 1780s, a society called 'Le Concert de la Loge Olympique', which put on concerts of music, became the talk of Parisian cultural circles. It is to this society, that we owe the origin of Joseph Haydn's celebrated six "Paris Symphonies".

During 1789-90, Joseph's G major symphony No.88 appeared. In Germany it was known as the "symphony with bagpipes", because of the unusual effects in the trio. Haydn's use in the slow movement of trumpets and drums aroused considerable interest as a special effect.

Side One : Symphony No.88 in G major , by Haydn :-
1) I Adagio - Allegro 2) II Largo 3) III Menuetto 4) IV Finale (Allegro con spirito)

Although it is called, one of the "London Symphonies", No.99 was actually written in Vienna. As with his last three symphonies (102-104) Haydn achieved a triumphant success with this one, and was overwhelmed with acclamation.

Side Two : Symphony No.99 in E flat, by Haydn :-
1) I Adagio - Vivace assai 2) II Adagio 3) III Menuetto (Allegretto) 4) IV Finale (Vivace)
