Haydn Seek


Most composers complete around 9 or 10 symphonies. Mozart has an astounding 41. So it’s pretty remarkable that Joseph Haydn’s symphonies number 104 in total. For this record, Crossroads comes through with another silly design to match “The Chase”, the subtitle of Haydn’s Symphony No. 73. Three horseman are jumping a hedge, while the fourth sits hidden and picnicking with the fox they’re apparently pursuing. Both symphonies on the album are characteristically light, with spots of humor, and tightly structured. Put another way: very Haydn-esque.
