About

The musicians of the Freiburger Barockorchester chose to highlight the craggiest ‘Sturm und Drang’ side of the composer in August 2008 when they recorded Symphony No.49, ‘La Passione’. It is coupled here with Violin Concerto no.1 and Symphony No.80.

outstanding” - International Record Review, November 2009

Directing from the solo violin, Gottfried von der Goltz combines the crispness and resonance of the best period practice with a genuine sweetness of tone.” - Bayan Northcott, BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2009

"The period instruments players of the Freiburger Barockorchester and their director Gottfried von der Goltz play with sharp conviction." - Michael Dervan, Irish Times, 9 October 2009

"Freiburger Barockorchester storm through two of Haydn's most startling symphonies. No.49, 'La Passione', is held as a prime example of Sturm und Drang, though No. 80 more than equals it in terms of contrasting sonorities, styles and textures, from the ländler interruptions of the first movement to the proto-Beethovenian harmonies of the menuetto. Played by Gottfried van der Goltz, the First Violin Concerto is a temperate oasis." - Anna Picard, Independent on Sunday, 8 November 2009
