Catalogue Number: 08K018
Label: Phoenix Edition
Description: Because there can never be too many recordings (only one other is even widely available right now) of the amazing Les Élémens, whose opening representation of primeval chaos makes Haydn's later effort sound like Muzak, we offer this brand-new one, coupled with another piece from the same year - 1737 - showing how a younger composer can sound much older and more conservative than a 71-year-old! L'Orfeo Baroque Orchestra; Michi Gaigg. SACD hybrid.
