Koopman conducts Haydn

Beethoven struggled to complete just nine. Brahms could manage only four. But it was Haydn, before them, who produced an astonishing 104 symphonies, defining the form as we know it in the process.  Ton Koopman conducts Haydn’s Symphony No. 98 plus Suite No. 1 from Handel's graceful Water Music.
