Haydn 24 Minuets
...a sixty-word review by Colin Anderson
If the thought of listening to 24 minuets (and trios) at one sitting seems stodgy, you can of course play just a few and note your favourites. Haydns genius is such that each Minuet has a different stamp: delectable dance-music of wit and invention. Antal Dorati recorded all of Haydns symphonies and operas and here leads elegant and ceremonial accounts.
