The HAYDN2032 edition celebrates the release of the tenth volume in the complete recording of Haydn's 107 symphonies. Entitled 'The Times of Day', this programme is devoted to Symphonies nos. 6, 7 and 8, whose individual names translate as 'Morning', 'Noon' and 'Evening'. Prince Paul Anton Esterhazy, who commissioned the work, is said to have wanted to show his guests that his orchestra was of excellent quality and that 'his' Haydn was highly inventive. Giovanni Antonini's orchestra, Il Giardino Armonico, once again rises to the challenge! This triptych following the sun's course is prolonged into the night by the work of another composer: Mozart's Serenade in D major, nicknamed Serenata notturna, probably written for a masked ball at Salzburg Town Hall in February 1776. This limited and numbered edition contains two vinyl LPs along with an album of photos by Jerome Sessini (Magnum Photos) and a magnificent unpublished text entitled Joseph Haydn meurt by the Dutch pianist and writer Margriet de Moor.
