[…] these five symphonies are worth being played more often, especially when they are presented as brillantly as here with Michi Gaigg and the L’Orfeo Baroque Orchestra. Relentless phrasing, fantastic dynamic shades – these are bound to keep the listener spellbound right up to the end of the E-Flat major symphony.

Michi Gaigg brings out all the flavor of these symphonies, with strong, piquant accents. Gaigg’s Holzbauer will not disappoint. Warmly recommended.
