Excelent, complete the sound on this set is better than on the hogwood (incomplete) haydn symphonies set (of which half of this boxed set is a duplication)
I have heard about 30 of the hogwood/academy of ancient music haydn symphonies from l'oiseau lyre 3 cd sets, including symphonies 1-8 and some of the sturm und drang middle period haydn symphonies and was very favorably impressed: excellent sound and performances
I learned haydn's london symphonies from the beecham/rpo 1950s emi cycle, and am no fan of period instruments, but bruggen convinced me of the excellence of his readings
I cannot comment on the dantone/accademia bizantia 78-81 in this set, or the bruggen/orchestra of the age of enlightenment symphonies, but believe they are excellent on the reviews of others, both amazon and american record guide
