In the third installment in their acclaimed series, Harry Christophers and the Handel and Haydn Society present a new live recording devoted to the master of the symphony - Joseph Haydn. This release showcases Haydn's Symphony No. 8 Le soir, which completes the trilogy written for Prince Paul Anton Esterhazy. Also included is the later Symphony No. 84 which shows just how much Haydn's symphonies had transformed from those early years. Not only is it an incredible fusion of grace, brilliance and warmth but it also contains one of the most striking wind band solos in all of his Paris symphonies. Completing the programme is the Violin Concerto in A major performed by H+H's fiery and expressive Concertmaster, Aisslinn Nosky.
