Josep Haydn – Violin & Cello Concertos
Recorded in the United Kingdom on January 1972 (Cello Concertos) and May 1980 (Violin Concertos)
About this work:
It’s amazing how great musicians come in pairs–think of Bach and Handel, Haydn and Mozart–and often with complimentary abilities. Mozart was the ultimate concerto composer, Haydn the great symphonist. And yet each composed fine–indeed sublime–works in the other’s “territory.” Haydn’s Violin Concertos are early works, but they have always been favoured by violinists on account of their gracefully-written and elegant solo parts, to say nothing of their perfect suitability for performance by amateurs and chamber orchestras. Salvatore Accardo performs these charming pieces with consummate taste as well as a healthy dose of energy.
