Haydn Sinfonietta Wien, Manfred Huss
Haydn Sinfonietta Wien’s acclaimed recordings of Haydn’s overtures were originally produced and released by the Koch/Schwann label, and have been remastered by BIS Records for this collection.
To commemorate the bicentenary of the death of Joseph Haydn, BIS Records and the Haydn Sinfonietta Wien have entered into a collaboration which will result in several releases during 2009. The repertoire will mainly consist of rare works from Haydn’s œuvre, including music written for the stage, concert arias and orchestral works.
“Manfred Huss and his brilliant period band - with gleefully whooping, rasping horns - relish to the full the colour and crackling energy of these overtures, without short-changing the delicate sentiment of their slow sections.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2009
“There is no other set of Haydn overtures at this level of comprehensiveness, nor does there need to be. This one is sensational.” Classics Today

Jane Archibald (soprano)
Orchestre Symphonique Bienne, Thomas Rösner
This CD features Canadian soprano Jane Archibald in her first solo recording. She sings excerpts from Haydn’s operas Orlando Paladino, Il mondo della luna and L’isola disabitata.
Her recent engagements include performances at the Opéra National de Paris, La Scala and the Royal Opera House.
“Her agile coloratura technique and ease in the stratosphere are on show in this disc of mainly flamboyant Haydn arias...She reveals a fullness in the middle and lower registers not often found in a lyric-coloratura soprano...A soprano of dramatic flair and dazzling technical accomplishment.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2011
(also available to download from $10.50)

Haydn - Symphonies Nos. 97 & 102
“At their best, these performances combine rhythmic guile, pungency of detail and an impressive control of the music's long paragraphs. No 97, last and most flamboyant in Haydn's regal line of C major symphonies, is especially fine, whether in the tension and mystery of the first-movement coda, the whining, nasal al ponticello violins... in the Adagio... or the vivid sense of comic conspiracy in the finale.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2007
