About

The Los Angeles Times proclaimed "Haydn and McGegan were made for each other." Following on from their 2011 Grammy-nominated recording 'Haydn: Symphonies Nos. 104, 88, and 101', music director Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra present three inventive symphonies from Haydn’s middle period: nos 57, 67 & 68.

Haydn composed these works in the 1770s, a decade when he was often creating three to four new symphonies each year. He acknowledged that this pace forced him to 'become original'. What we hear are the fruits of a period in which Haydn was eagerly exploring the possibilities of symphonic form and expression, presented by America’s leading period instrument orchestra.

The performances were recorded live at First Congregational Church, Berkeley, CA in 2014.
