Haydn - Symphonies 94 'Surprise' & 96 'Miracle', AAM, Hogwood. I have a number of performances of both symphony No. 94 and 96. Hogwood's is quite competitive with the best in 94 (Szell) and 96 (Szell and Abbado. Hogwood provides vigorous earthy performances and the recorded sound is clear and vivid. The keyboard continuo is audible at times but not objectionable to me. Both Szell and Abbado are more elegant but Hogwood is more vigorous. This album was one of the great achievements of the early "period instrument" movement, which came into its maturity in the late '70s and early '80s with the recordings of Mozart's symphonies by these same musicians. Realizing their interpretations according to the same instrumental sonorities that Haydn himself would have had in mind, this as much chamber music as it is orchestral music.
Symphony No. 94 in G major, The Surprise (1791). 95 in C minor (1791). 96 in D major, The Miracle (1791). 97 in C major (1792). Prior to the commencement of this project, Hogwood and the AAM had recorded four of Haydn's later symphonies (94, 96, 100, and 104) for L'Oiseau Lyre, which were released on LP and later on CD. The last five of the 15-volume series were never released, although at least Nos. 76 and 77 were recorded and had a limited release on CD through BBC Music Magazine.
