The start of an extensive series with little-known works by Joseph Haydn: his settings of Scottish Songs, for vocal soloists and piano trio.
Haydn wrote more then 400 folksong arrangements, on commission from George Thomson, a Scottish publisher. These Brilliant Classics will record complete during the coming years, forming the first complete edition.
These delightful works, full of sentiment and wit, are sung here in their original Scottish language, by two famous Scottish singers: Lorna Anderson and Jamie MacDougall, accompanied by the Haydn Trio Eisenstadt (piano trio: violin, piano, cello).
The complete original texts, and a synopsis per song in German, and the highly interesting liner notes make this issue an original and well-documented quality product.
