Quote from: Bunny on April 07, 2007, 07:41:10 AMThere are many HIP Haydn recordings, but so far as I know, the only complete or semi-complete set of the symphonies is by Christopher Hogwood and the AAM, but it's out of print and the volumes are very scarce and expensive. Whenever I come across one of those at a reasonable price, I snap it up.
Quote from: Bill on April 07, 2007, 08:03:35 AMYes. I emailed them some time ago with whether they might re-release these Hogwood recordings. Here is what they wrote back:Dear Bill,Decca have not informed us of any plans to re-release or finish these discs. As you suggest it would be lovely to be able to complete the set. At this stage in a volatile recording market it is not viable for Decca to do so but we hope, as you do, that it may be a future possibility.Regards,Laura MilnerAdministrator AAM
Quote from: Bunny on April 07, 2007, 09:43:59 AMGurn, there are so many labels that record HIP music, I would be hard pressed to name them all. Besides, most of the HIP artists and ensembles seem to float from one company to another every time their contracts come up for renewal so it's probably more helpful to list the HIP artists and ensembles than the labels. I also find that most labels are not exclusively HIP in any repetory. Take Cpo; it has so many HIP recordings as well as non HIP.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on April 07, 2007, 03:53:44 PMNo, you're right about that, Bunny. Those two are nearly a sure thing though. And L'Oiseau Lyre, too. I do have several HIP recordings on CPO, as you say, but in some cases I didn't even know it until after I got the disk (like the Holzbauer symphonies, for example) because CPO swings both ways. If DHM does too, then I guess I've been lucky, since I haven't a single one on modern instruments.
Quote from: Haffner on April 07, 2007, 12:41:09 PMThe Kuijiken Haydn Symphonies are quite good! I'm not sure if they are better than the Hogwood, however...

Quote from: Bunny on April 11, 2007, 10:59:10 AMActually, the Kuijken did not receive bad reviews here, in fact the set was recommended by Que and Haffner. Not surprisingly, I also have the Kuijken London Symphonies, so perhaps later I'll listen to the Drumroll and let you know what I think. I have Adam Fischer's complete set of Haydn Symphonies, and while it's not HIP, it's really very, very, good. If you can find a single recording of the Drumroll, that might just be the ticket. In fact, it's as good a complete set as has been made. Stefan Sanderling has a set of London Symphonies as well, and if his single release of nos. 94, 100 and the Overture from La Premiata Fedeltà is anything to go by, he's and excellent Haydn interpreter, too. And there is also Leonard Bernstein's recording with the NYPO, which while far from HIP does have it's very great merits.
Quote from: Haffner on April 12, 2007, 04:05:04 AMThe Adam Fischer set is terrific, but I think the Dorati Symphony recordings might be overall better. The latter are a bit more consistent I think.
