Haydn - Complete Symphonies Volume 22

Haydn - Complete Symphonies Volume 22


Haydn:

Symphony No. 98 in B flat major

Symphony No. 103 in E flat major 'Drum Roll'


Haydn’s Symphonies Nos. 98 and 103 come from his set of 12 so-called "London" symphonies, written at the height of his mastery and celebrity. With these pieces, Haydn accomplishes the rare feat of writing works that are both intellectually demanding and perfectly delightful at the same time. This is music that the audience can understand. And our conductor has understood as well - namely, that this music requires passionate music-making, something that can be experienced in the previous 21 volumes of Haydn’s symphonies recorded by the Heidelberger Sinfoniker. The recordings of Thomas Fey and his musicians are highly praised around the world for their personal expression, and precision of execution as well as their innate ability to detect the internal characterization of each movement. Here is their newest chapter in their recordings of the complete Haydn Symphonies, one destined to become a cult classic.

“it remains clear that Fey has thought carefully about (nearly) every note and phrase...Fey's teachers, Bernstein and Harnoncourt, are perhaps the yin and yang of Haydn performance but their influence combines in readings that push for maximum individuality.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2014

Haydn - Complete Symphonies Volume 20

Haydn - Complete Symphonies Volume 20


Haydn:

Symphony No. 43 in E flat major 'Mercury'

Symphony No. 25 in C major

Symphony No. 36 in E flat major


The 20th installment in Thomas Fey and the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra’s recordings of the complete symphonies of Haydn.

International critical acclaim ranks Fey’s interpretations among the best.

Performances that balance historical performance practice while using modern strings and historical brass instruments.

The symphonies presented here date from the years 1762 and 1771. While scored only for strings and pairs of two oboes and horns with a bassoon added, Haydn manages to delight us with numerous surprising ideas: Symphony No. 25 has no slow movement, while No. 36 suddenly becomes a concerto movement with solo violin and solo cello and No. 43 storms forward with relentlessly driving rhythms... You can clearly hear that Haydn was a great experimenter and a great entertainer. Thomas Fey’s interpretations make all this clearly heard.

“Fey is less concerned with driving it hard and accentuating Haydn's characteristic nervy energy, taking the first movement more gently than in many other recordings...[in No. 36] Haydn lays out a set of contrasting themes, and Fey and his Heidelbergers audibly revel in the symphonic argument” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013

Haydn - Complete Symphonies Volume 19


Haydn:

Symphony No. 26 in D minor 'Lamentatione'

Symphony No. 27 in G major

Symphony No. 42 in D Major


The recording of the complete Haydn Symphonies with the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Fey continues with this performance of Symphonies No’s 26, 27and 42. Critically acclaimed, this series has perfectly developed the ‘Haydn Sound’ created by orchestra and conductor alike.

“Fey's performances continue in the style to which we have grown accustomed: flexible tempi; enthusiastic ornamentation; a sometimes over-literal underlining of effects; a welcome apprecation of the crucial importance of the horns in this music” Gramophone Magazine, May 2013

Symphony No. 92 in G major 'Oxford'


Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“Fey has form for his previous heavy-handed telling of Haydn's jokes but, mirabile dictu, he plays this one pretty much straight...just about the best offering yet in this occasionally exasperating but always thought-provoking series.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

“Fey is rightly more interested in recreating the spirit, drama and character that Haydn would have wanted rather than strictly the sound world...it is clear that he combines that knowledge along with his sound musical instincts in everything he does...This is really exciting playing – bold and daring and invariably seems to somehow feel ‘right’.” Chris O'Reilly, Presto Classical, 19th March 2012

Haydn:

Symphony No. 53 in D major 'The Imperial'

Symphony No. 54 in G major

Sinfonia in D major, Hob. Ia:7


These are two delightful and lesser known Haydn symphonies and are full of surprises and innovations. Every new release in this series is greeted with enthusiasm: “There is much to fascinate and admire here…” International Record Review

“Fey's performances always leave me breathless, seldom less than invigorated, often infuriated, and it'll be fascinating to hear how he measures up when only the less outgoing symphonies are left to be recorded.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2011

“What results is an astringent sonority, the timpani played with ‘hard’ sticks, the brass with piercing bite. All of this works well, the overall orchestral texture being especially well focused, the modern strings gaining a nasal sonority in their freedom from vibrato…this is a valuable release” International Record Review, July/August 2011

Haydn: Symphonies Nos. 82 - 87 (the Paris Symphonies)


Thomas Fey’s repertoire ranges from Bach to Brahms and he has focused on the symphonies and solo concertos of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn. The international music press has poured out a flood of acclaim for the Heidelberger Sinfoniker’s fiery, unusual interpretations. A number of their recordings have received international awards.

“these readings simply feel "right" - and, for this Haydnista at least, are now the first port of call for these wonderful works.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2011

“Velvet-toned, sleight-of-hand performances that make light of Schubert's prodigious technical demands and keep the music 'singing' through even the densest passages of musical terrain.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2013 ****
