For this second volume in the Haydn 2032 project, the complete recording of his symphonies, Giovanni Antonini has chosen to put forward the Symphony Der Philosoph. He associates with it a symphony by Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, eldest son of the Kantor of Leipzig, who is generally considered the most gifted of his sons. Different reasons brought these two great composers the originality and sometimes eccentricity that characterize their works, one suffering from the fame of his father, the other from his own genius. Whereas Haydns symphonies differentiate themselves by form, orchestration and keys, W. F. Bachs begins in the style of a Baroque overture, gradually turning into a tempestuous piece and perhaps already reflecting the transition from a Golden Age to the more tormented world that will follow the Age of Enlightenment.
