HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Joseph Haydn – Symphonies 93 – 104 (Dorati)


Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this fine collection
These performances have been a mainstay of the classical music world since they were first recorded and released (the recordings were made over a three and a half year period beginning in July 1969 and continuing through December 1972, with the first releases made on LP in 1970). Dorati’s project was just the second to record the complete Haydn symphonies, following Ernst Märzendorfer and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, in very limited release on LP and infrequently mentioned today.

Please, pay attention: due to some errors on naming the last four Symphonies 
(101 was actually 103, 102 was actually 104…and vice-versa), 
I uploaded 5 archives with the symphonies 101-104 with the right names now. Please, DL them and replace the old files. Thank you!

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Decca) Joseph Haydn – Symphonies 82-92 & Sinfonia Concertante (Dorati)

Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this fine collection

Haydn was a remarkable composer. He has yet to be discovered by most listeners…I mean, REALLY discovered and relished. For after all, as the Kapellmeister to Prince Nicholas Esterhazy for so much of his lifetime, Haydn had to create entertainment for his Prince and his “occasions”. So Haydn wrote the music, repaired the instruments, saw to it his musicians were happy, and kept Prince Nicholas totally enthralled. For recreation Haydn would go on a royal hunt, a sport he dearly loved and which shows up in his music…

Audiophile HD-Vinyls 24/192 (Mercury) Bela Bartok – Dance Suite, Deux Portraits, Mikrokosmos (Dorati)

front-small-boxset Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this marvellous record
Yet for my money this disc is “where it’s at,” to use street slang. Dorati gives us stunning clarity and some real insights into a work that’s a lot more complex than other recordings will have you realize. There are inner details revealing Bartok’s complex cross-rhythms that often get lost in the frenzy of brass and percussion in many performances. Amazingly, this recording is as powerful and, well, “loud” as any other, yet all the delicate detail shows through. You’ll hear lines you never heard before, and discover phrases to be make up of combinations of instruments you didn’t realize.
