"Paris" Symphonies Nos. 84, 85, 86 & 87 - Violin Concerto No. 1
- Apple Music
Commissioned by the Comte d’Ogny for the Le Concert de la Loge Olympique, the ‘Paris’ Symphonies form a key milestone in Haydn’s output. William Christie and Les Arts Florissants have long loved these highly original works, and offer us an exhilaratingly elegant and poetic reading of four of them. The coupling is the all too rarely played Violin Concerto no.1, here directed by the soloist Théotime Langlois de Swarte.
