    Posting the final Saturday Symphony of 2016 a little early because I won't be able to be online tomorrow. Hope everyone can ring in the New Year with a little Haydn.

    I'll be listening too:

    Bernstein - Symphony Edition - CD22 - Haydn - Symphonies 98 & 99.jpg

    Leonard Bernstein/New York Philharmonic

    Bernstein for me also. If I get ambitious, I might squeeze in Szell and Beecham.

    I'm sticking to Antal Dorati & Philharmonia Hungarica, always a reliable choice.

    For No. 99, Bernstein, C. Davis or for the HIP lovers, hard to beat Sigiswald Kuijken leading La Petite Bande.

    I have all the above and then some.

    I'll listen to all the above!!!

    Yes the ideal starting place for any Haydn symphony
    I think I will look for another couple of comparative versions from those above with Marc Minkowski thrown in
    Certainly been a few Haydn Symphonies of late in the SS list

    I promise myself I do will listen to Dorati as well, but started with my first choice on this one.

    I'll be starting with Danish conductor Mogens Wöldike:





    Later, I hope to get around to my "go to" conductor for Haydn, Hermann Scherchen:




    Coincidentally, both of these recordings were made with the Vienna State Opera Orchestra. Scherchen's recording was made in 1951 for Westminster, and Wöldike's was made in 1956 for Vanguard.

    I'll go with Beecham & his Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Beecham has a way with Haydn of really brining the spirit of the music to the fore.

    Bernstein also performs very well here but as I have work first thing (sadly), I'll only have time for the one performance this evening.
