World-leading exponent in historical cello playing - Daniel Yeadon, joins AHE again as soloist following his brilliant performance of CPE Bach’s A minor concerto last year.
Haydn’s cello concerto in C Major, despite being one of his most performed works for the cello, is rarely heard on period instruments. This will be a treat for audiences to hear this beloved work in its original way.
Helyard’s “energetic and inspiring leadership” combined with the “precise and elegant playing” of the AHE in Haydn's famous Symphony 'The Hen' (La Poule) will make for a wonderful evening.
Mozart's Symphony no 37, actually mostly written by Joseph Haydn's younger brother, Michael Haydn, also features on the program. This work was long thought to have been written by Mozart and performed all over the world as such. This was due to a manuscript copy in Mozart's hand.
Research has revealed that Mozart, admiring Michael much, copied the work adding his own touches to the work - including a beautiful and dramatic opening adagio as well as adding flute and oboe solos in the slow movement.
This concert also marks two wonderful milestones for us: our first City Recital Hall performance; and, the launch of our debut ABC Classics recording.
