Robin Ticciati & SCO - Haydn: Symphonies 31, 70 & 101 - The Herald Scotland

The first of two planned albums of Haydn symphonies from Robin Ticciati and the SCO ranges chronologically across the composer's oeuvre but sticks to three D major works for thematic unity. No 101 (‘The Clock') is the best known piece, but there's top work here from the orchestra's horns and a great feel for the composer's baroque leanings on No 31.
