ArtistsScottish Chamber Orchestra
This recording is the first of two which sees Robin Ticciati and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra present an overview of Haydn’s symphonic repertoire.
Ticciati’s approach takes the best elements of authenticity present in period performances, but with the dynamic range, space, colour and life that modern performance practice brings. Ticciati beautifully highlights the lines, clarity and shape of the music, a skill he brought to bear in his Schumann symphonies recording which garnered several five star reviews and accolades upon release.
Always popular with symphony orchestras, Haydn has occasionally been treated a little too ‘tidily’, but these performances are alive and excitingly fresh.
From Haydn’s early period, the Baroque influenced ‘Horn Signal’ has an almost Gothic tinged feel with highly contrapuntal elements. Comparatively, the first of Haydn’s famous ‘London’ Symphonies, ‘The Clock’, has its focus firmly on the future.
Due for release in 2016, the second recording in the series will include three further ‘London’ symphonies from Haydn’s late period.
Robin Ticciati’s recordings have received many accolades: Critics’ Choice ‘Sound of 2012’ (The Independent), ‘Classical CD of the Week’ (Sunday Times), ‘Disc of the Week’ (BBC Radio 3 ‘CD Review’), two Top 10 entries in The Sunday Times’ Best Classical Albums list (2012 & 2014) and ‘Recording of the Month’ (Gramophone).
Robin Ticciati is in his fifth season as Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. Gramophone named him one of the top ten young ‘conductors on the verge of greatness ’ and one of 'Tomorrow's Icons'.
‘[an] exhilaratingly free performance of The Clock…the tick-tock Andante had a fragile grandeur that was disarming and poignant.’ - The Guardian
‘The sound was vivid and clear…there was none of that dogmatic, driven quality some chamber orchestras give to Haydn.’ - The Telegraph
