Haydn: Notturni & Scherzandi
This Haydn Society 2CD set features little-known chamber works from the first and last decades of the composer’s life. Haydn completed nine Notturni (one is lost) - this group of eight works for chamber players is in effect a collection of three-movement divertimenti.
The six Scherzandi date from pre 1765 and are in effect miniature symphonies and are scored for two violins and basso continuo, flute, 2 oboes and 2 horns.

Haydn: Chamber Music for Wind and Strings
“These highly polished, enthusiastic performances have a compelling immediacy. The diverse choice of pieces amply shows the excellent soloistic skills of Linos's members and its deftly balanced ensemble.
Close recording presents the group's eloquence and vitality in fine, clear detail. The delightful, open-air qualities of this repertoire are exemplified by the F major Cassation, whose good humour is captured with buoyant vigour in the opening Allegro; with stately elegance in the two minuets, affecting melodiousness in the Adagio, and an engaging swing in the final rondo. The extrovert B flat Divertissement offers a charming display of fluent, conversational playing, a style the Linos exploits to particular effect in the lively alternation of different instrumental groupings in the elegant A major Quartet for flute and strings.
The infectiously high-spirited, effervescent exchanges between flute and oboe in the witty C major Notturno sum up the allure of this entertaining issue.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
