Kim Patrick Clow's interest in Michael Haydn prompts me to mention a
couple of cpo CDs I have of other music by him performed by Deutsche
Kammerakademie Neuss conducted by Johannes Goritzki. This is an HIP
orchestra and I very much like these and other CDs I've heard of theirs.
I don't have any of their symphony recordings but I imagine they're very
fine. I also commend to Kim two CDs of Joseph Haydn overtures on Koch by
the Haydn Sinfonietta Wien (again HIP) conducted by Manfred Huss. These
are wonderfully exhilarating. In a slightly less than ideal world, either
Huss or Goritzki would be recording a complete Haydn symphony cycle. In
a truly ideal world, they both would.
