Dohnanyi is seen working with the Philharmonia on Haydn's Symphony No. 88 in G for a concert in their 1998 Haydn/Bartók series at London's Royal Festival Hall.
It was to be Dohnanyi's first Haydn performance with the orchestra and so the limited time available for preparation was of vital importance.
The musicians' appreciation of his musically precise and exacting approach is evident in the concentrated atmosphere of rehearsals and also in comments they make about working with the maestro.
