Review By Scott Cantrell ,The Dallas Morning News,September 2006

RESCUED FROM OBSCURITY: Joseph Haydn's early symphonies languish in the long shadows of the later nicknamed ones. But if these eight early examples lack the authority and distinctive personalities of their successors, they're engaging, attractive and beautifully crafted.

FINE PERFORMANCES: The Toronto Camerata is a chamber orchestra that draws players from the Toronto Symphony, Canadian Opera Company, Canadian Ballet Orchestra and Tafelmusik.

BOTTOM LINE: These are modern-instrument performances, but conductor Kevin Mallon coaxes the sweetness and lilt of the best period-instrument groups. Recorded sound is at once clear and lush.
