About

Haydn's Symphony No.101 is the first LP featuring Robin Ticciati and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s charismatic partnership.

To make it extra special, this is a 45rpm Supercut, 180g vinyl which gives you everything you love about LPs but more: better dynamics, less noise and a cleaner Hi-Fi response.

Giving a snapshot of Haydn’s symphonic repertoire, Ticciati conducts the first of Haydn’s famous ‘London’ Symphonies, ‘The Clock’, which has its focus firmly on the future.

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.

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
