    Default Haydn Symphony No.18

    Have you a favourite? I like Hogwood:

    ... but slightly prefer Mallon/Toronto on Naxos for the fuller sound of modern instruments and more dynamism & variation.

    I thought Fischer dropped the ball in 18 to 21 so may buy Mallon as a supplement, or do you have a better idea?

    Here's Hsu/Apollo competing with Mallon for my top spot:

    All the versions are excellent (including Fischer), but I'd opt for the Hogwood.

    Just listened to Fischer again and now I like it! Mallon is maybe a bit faster and dynamic overall, but Fischer has interesting changes of pace/volume and beautiful soloists. Juts a case of getting used to his approach, perhaps. Funny game getting to like pieces of classical music.

    Max Goberman recorded all the Symphonies from 1 to 24.......

    ...... except this one! Annoying.

    I'd plump for Fischer as well, but Mallon on Naxos is very fresh and lively too!

    And that's the fun of classical music.
