Earlier today, I picked up this 3 CD set for less than €5. I was attracted to it because it contains: Schubert's 5th & 8th Symphonies performed by Goodman/Hanover Band; a collection of Songs; Impromptus and two String Quartets perfromed by the Brandis Quartet:

and for another fiver I managed to get a 3 CD set of recordings of Haydn's Symphonies performed by the Fischer/Austro-Hungarian Haydn Orchestra, I haven't got any other recordings by this ensemble and initial indications are favourable.

I found the earlier and later Haydn symphonies conducted by Fischer to be quite dood but I was not too keen on the middle period symphonies which Fischer did.

These are the 99-104 Symphonies.

One of my morning, before I go to work, projects over the last several months has been listening to both the Adam Fischer and Antal Dorati Haydn symphony cycles. I'm up to about Symphony No. 49 in both cycles and I find Fischer to be clearly preferable. In matters of phrasing, orchestral balance, clarity of detail, orchestral playing and recorded sound his cycle is on another level (his Hornsignal, for example, will get your attention!). In terms of tempi they are similar, but the articulation in Fischer's orchestra is so much better that his readings sound lighter and crisper. Dorati does use a slightly bigger string section, but not much. And Fischer's being recorded over a period of twelve years or so, there are differences in the period style playing of his strings, some symphonies sounding more HIP than others. Dorati's nod to HIP practices is the small orchestra and the occasional use of a harpsichord.

The Dorati cycle is very good and put this cycle on the phonographic map (although I don't believe it was the first) but I'm finding Fischer's to be outstanding.

That's interesting John, your comments are welcome, I have considered getting a copy of the Fischer cycle and if I could get the complete set at a reasonable price I would certainly do so. I have the Dorati cycle I am fond of it and it seems to be the more popular choice among the members of CMG.

Mine is part of a 100 CD Brilliant Classics box (just what you wanted to hear :)) devoted to the symphonic repertoire (including cycles of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler, Shostkovich and others). But Brilliant has also issued the Fischer by itself (about €49 at Amazon.de).

That is a very good box set but I already have the complete Mozart, Beethoven and Shostakovich cycles from that collection. I'm not interested in the Brahms or Mahler so I am in the market for the Fischer cycle only.

This is a not bad rendition of this great symphony. Still prefer HVK 1963, but Jarvi surely has the measure of the piece.

The Planets was probably the first piece of classical music that held my attention but I haven't owned a recording of it for many years. Last week, I felt like plugging the gap in my paltry collection. I popped into a charity shop this afternoon and, using an obscure Jedi mind trick, picked out this beauty.

The Force will be with you, always.

Anne Sofie von Otter & Bengt Forsberg combine beautifully on the Sibelius Song cycle on the Essential Sibelius set on BIS so I would imagine that they work very well together on that recording too.

Symphony No. 1 was re-issued on a Gold Seal CD with the Pastoral, which should be fairly easy to find. Broadcast performances of Symphonies 4 and 8 were issued on two sets issued by the CSO Archives titled The Reiner Era Vols. III and II respectively. These latter two are no longer available and are probably difficult to find.

Symphony No. 2 is also available with the CSO on a DVD.

It is okay. It is not stellar. I like Hampson doing the piano versions better. It is interesting to hear the songs in a chamber performance instead of full orchestra..

There is a budget EMI box of the late (London) Haydn symphonies with Eugene Jochum. It's the best I've heard in Haydn symphonies.

I have the Dorati cycle I am fond of it and it seems to be the more popular choice among the members of CMG.

Yes, I've considered Fey too. :?
There is a budget EMI box of the late (London) Haydn symphonies with Eugene Jochum. It's the best I've heard in Haydn symphonies.
Have you listened to the Abbado/COE London Symphonies then? they are truly magnificent.
