Review of Joseph Haydn: Cello Concertos published on 12 July 2023
Jean-Guihen Queyras, cello
Petra Müllejans, director
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809):
Concerto for violoncello and orchestra, Hob VIIb:1 in C
3 Allegro molto
Concerto for violoncello and orchestra, Hob VIIb:2 in D
4 Allegro moderato
6 Rondo. Allegro
Georg Matthias Monn (1717-1750):
Concerto for violoncello, strings and harpsichord in G minor
9 Allegro non tanto
In 2004, Jean-Guihen Queyras and the Freiburger Barockorchester offered us a prodigious interpretation of Haydn's two cello concertos, coupled with a rare concerto by Georg Matthias Monn, a pioneer of the genre - a version now recognised as a landmark in the discography.
Recorded in March 2003 at Teldex Studio Berlin, Germany.
