. . . [Claudio Abbado lends pathos to the first two movements of Symphony no. 103] so that the long and rich development section of the main "Allegro" gains awesome momentum through its unprecedented transformation of the introduction's "Dies irae" motif. The Chamber Orchestra of Europe players imbue every phrase of the "Minuet" with tiny shifts of weight and colour, and the gently burbling trio is decorated with trills . . . playing of phenomenal colour and invention . . .

Abbado a très vite découvert le secret des symphonies de Haydn, charmé par leur fantaisie, leurs thèmes populaires, leur science dépourvue de sévérité. Approche rendue évidente par le jeu stylé et l'effectif idéal de l'Orchestre de chambre d'Europe.
