Haydn: Symphony No. 92 (Oxford); Symphony No.101 (Clock)

Our rating 
2.0 out of 5 star rating 2.0

COMPOSERS: Haydn
LABELS: White Label
WORKS: Symphony No. 92 (Oxford); Symphony No.101 (Clock)
PERFORMER: Hungarian State Orchestra/Ervin Lukács
CATALOGUE NO: HRC 089 ADD (1988)
Two of Haydn’s most popular symphonies played by a large orchestra on modern instruments. Though adequate, they could do with an extra degree of dash and finesse; the playing is less incisive than previous White Label Haydn discs by the Hungarian CO with Vilmos Tátrai. High-class competition in this repertoire (even in the lower price-range) includes Groves for the Oxford (IMP) and Jochum (Galleria) for the Clock. Graham Lock
