The Seasons, a late work of Haydn's and the last oratorio he wrote, is a musical manifesto addressed to nature and the countryfolk, breaking ground with its hitherto unexplored subject-matter as it heralds the dawning Romantic era in music, thus occupying a special place in Haydn's oeuvre. Nikolaus Harnoncourt brings out the simplicity of the work. Bonus: Documentary 'Nikolaus Harnoncourt rehearsing Joseph Haydn's The Seasons' by Eric Schulz.
