    Today I went with my son to a "Family" concert. The Tonhalle orchestra was directed by a certain Martin Yates, which I didn't hear about before this event.

    They played the 4th movement of Haydn's symphony no. 82, the first movement of his 83rd and Peter and the wolf.
    Even if the event was not very serious I was impressed by the interpretations of the Haydn symphonies. I liked the tempi, the accents and the different levels between the pianissimos and fortissimos without exceeding in the overall dynamics. My impression is that it was a very interesting Haydn, light but never superficial.

    Has anybody heard Yates interpretations?

    Well, a quick Google search suggested he is a musician concerned with the lighter side of music. But I'm not sure it is the same MY.
