Brueggen's performances of the London Symphonies actually helped me to
become a Haydn convert.  The sound of his orchestra is almost palpable,
and every measure delightful, (and sometimes ominous).

I have looked at the set of the Paris Symphonies by Brueggen, and dare I
ask: (OK, I will) Is the live audience well behaved?
