Hey everyone

I'm convinced that at some point, can't remember when, I read, in a library, some of a book by H C Robbins Landon which was about 200-300 pages long, called The Symphonies on Joseph Haydn or something like that and had a short chapter devoted to each symphony.

And yet I can't find any mention of a work like this in Robbins Landon's oeuvre.

It might have been by someone else, but it was quite an old book (60s or 70s) and not too many people were writing in English then about Haydn except HCRL.

What was the book I was looking at?

I googled and immediately came up with used copies of  "Haydn Symphonies" by H.C. Robbins Landon for sale. So I don't know why you're not finding it.

Or if that's not the one you want, there is "The Symphonies of Joseph Haydn" which is older.

That looks like a great disk!  Sure would like to see the pace of release pick up a bit,  there's a lot to do before 2032!   :o

I’ll be attending one of the Viennese concerts. The program contains these three symphonies but not the concerto, unless they plan to surprise us.

Probably an encore. I'm jealous.  😒

Op 71/2 live here, Lindsays. Sounds like good music to me. I don’t think I’ve ever heard the op 71 quartets, attentively.


I’ll tell you how I came across it. I was listening to Maxwell Davies’s 5th quartet on Qobuz. Qobuz suggests related music and it came up with Haydn op 71 played by the Maxwell Quartet - syntax. So I thought, why not, I’ll try it. Well after the Max quartet the Haydn sounded like kindergarten tunes.  Before dismissing it completely I thought I’d see what I have in my own collection and came up with this Lindsay Quartet CD - and it’s not like nursery music at all!

Indeed, that would be something to look forward to. I need to give some thought about an passe-partout. ;)

Saw this on a listing for BBC Radio 3

"Interval music: Fortepianist Ronald Brautigam plays Haydn's Piano Sonata in D major H. 16.51 - written around the time of The Creation."

That was a long time ago!

Premiered in the Garden of Eden by Adam to an audience consisting of Eve and the Snake. Rumor has it that the latter hissed the performance.

Although I don't listen to his music very often, Haydn remains a very special composer to me, since he was the first composer, along with Mozart, with whom I started appreciating classical music. I have Karajan's recording for the Paris and London Symphonies, but I would like to get a complete box set of Haydn's symphonies. Any suggestion or recordings you would recommend?

Isn't the Dorati box the one to get?

Dorati/Philharmonia Hungarica and Adam Fischer/Austro Hungarian Haydn Orchestra are both supposed to be quite good. Both Hungarians, go figure.
