These splendid, richly orchestrated minuets were only published in 1972. They contain delicate, robust, dramatic, sad – even wistful – music from Haydn’s post-London period of The Creation, played with great panache by the Hungarians and conducted by the man who has recorded the most Haydn in our century. HC Robbins Landon
