Symphony No. 31 in D major, Hob. I:31, ‘Hornsignal’
Symphony No. 70 in D major, Hob. I:70
Symphony No. 101 in D major, Hob. I:101, ‘The Clock’
... a trilogy of D Major performances that truly capture the spirit essence of Haydn.
From Haydn's early period the Baroque influenced 'Horn Signal' has an almost Gothic tinged feel with highly contrapuntal elements. Comparatively, the first of Haydn's famous 'London' Symphonies, the 'Clock', has its focus firmly on the future.
Ticciati's approach takes the best elements of authenticity present in period performances, but with the dynamic range, space, colour and life that modern performance practice brings. Ticciati beautifully highlights the lines, clarity and shape of the music, a skill he brought to bear in his Schumann symphonies recording which garnered several five-star reviews and accolades upon release.
Always popular with symphony orchestra's Haydn has occasionally been treated a little too 'tidily', but these performances are alive and excitingly fresh.
This recording was name one of the 'Best Classical Music Albums of 2015' by The Telegraph and featured on numerous other 'Best' lists including The Herald, Audiophila, Bay Area Reporter and Colorado Public Radio.
