There are 106 symphonies by the classical composer Joseph Haydn (1732–1809). In the subsequent decades, numerous inaccuracies in the chronology (especially in the lower numbers) were found, but the Mandyczewski numbers were so widely used that when Anthony van Hoboken compiled his catalogue of Haydn's. The "Paris symphonies": Symphony No. 82 in C major, The Bear (1786). In the sixties, Leslie Jones conducted some fifty of Haydn's symphonies together with The Little Orchestra of London. Although not using period instruments, Jones may have been one of the first conductors to use small scale forces. Four conductors have recorded the complete symphonies of Joseph Haydn.

This may not, in fact, be true for "Gramophone", but it's an accurate statement of the position in the UK CD market just now. Does he really deserve that? - Peter Street. Alas I no longer have these, but I do remember them as revelatory. I had been used to "big band" Haydn at that time and found the Leslie Jones approach so refreshing.

Haydn: The Paris Symphonies, Nos. 82 - 87, Brüggen. Haydn: The Symphonies. Brüggen and the Orchestra of the 18th Century performed these live in concert. But don't be worried about audience noise, for it's obvious the listeners were "in the moment" and were respectfully attentive throughout. Also, the sound quality is very good. Brüggen's band uses period instruments, which make their unique voices heard both generally and in many special moments. Orchestral playing under Brüggen is always thrilling and highly eventful, and consistently more exciting and spontaneous. I'm a big fan of Colin Davis'.
