    Album information

    For the sixth volume of the ambitious Haydn 2032 project, released in 2018, the Milanese conductor is again joined by the Kammerorchester Basel. 

    The year 2017 was a vintage one for Giovanni Antonini: he was awarded an Echo Klassik, two Gramophone Awards and a Diapason d’Or de l'année for his recent releases. Two of these prizes distinguished Il Distratto, Volume 4 of the complete recording of the Haydn symphonies on which he embarked for Alpha in 2014.

    This volume focuses on symphonies with a ‘sacred’ inspiration: the Symphony No. 26, ‘Lamentatione’, was composed in 1768 for Holy Week, and No. 30 was nicknamed ‘Alleluja’ after the plainchant melody Haydn uses in it. Symphony No. 41 was written in 1769.
