(+) Haydn Symphonies

Universal Music Italia released a large number Haydn symphonies recorded by Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music in a single box set. [Decca, 2012, 32 CDs]

The set (though sadly incomplete) includes not only the symphonies recorded between 1988 and 1995, as part of the “complete“ Decca project, but also four London Symphonies recorded earlier as LPs in 1983-4. The only recorded symphonies that are missing are, alas, numbers 76 and 77, originally recorded for the “complete” project but eventually issued as a single CD by BBC Music Magazine (recorded in 1996 and issued in the May 2005 issue).” [hogwood.org]
