IMO this is fantastic, even if you're an incorruptible PI fan (are you there, Gurn? :)

Wonderful playing! I have never heard of her before, which is no surprise, but maybe will hear more one day. :)

It's strange, I loved her almost since the first bar, and the subsequent bars just confirmed this first impression. Her closed eyes during the entire performance, her body as a prolongation of the cello, it's just a beautiful thing to watch.  :)

Yes, all of that. She provided a certain æsthetic to this already great concerto that Rostropovich, for example, couldn't quite pull off. :D

I think we probably did mention it, although it was a while back. I got that CD the day it was released (pre-ordered it!) and must agree, it IS insanely good. :)  Great to see it performed, nice video.

A good read, thanks.  And listening to the samples on HaydnHouse.com they sound very fresh and lively.
I remember that Oryx label - it was not by any means under Gramophone's radar because the Lionel Rogg survey of Bach's organ music was much admired at the time.  And there was a marvellous issue of Nicholas Danby playing pedal harpsichord, very well recorded, dated as late as 1968.

A quick glance looks very interesting, already . . . going to load it onto my Kindle for relaxed reading.

Nice!

No doubt!

Gurn added a good news. I thought that it had only released as DVD, but there is a CD, so it's included in my wishlist now.  :)

Thanks, Dave, for that article. It was quite an insightful analysis. While I have little interest in historic recordings, I have a compelling interest in how Haydn has been treated over the years. I have a few Dorati disks and was never overly impressed by them. Nice to see I am not alone. :)

And I was unaware of the video version, so that has been rectified now, too. :D

I bought a bunch of the MHS Lps.  What I've sampled has been lively, as you say.

Oh, no, I like the operas. I was just referring to the symphonies. Several of the operas are one-and-only's though, and even if there is nothing to compare them against, they are still very fine.  :)

Of at least peripheral interest to Haydnistos

Not just because of the Haydn VC, but because of track 11, which is 4:41 long, composed in 1810, by that Salomon. Although more Mozartean than Haydnian in overall sound.

That's a nice lineup of music there. You're right about that Salomon Romance, it's a nice thing. I have it on this Midori Seiler disk, a very nice little throw-in.



Thanks for the rec.

Interesting that there is only the one movement from the Myslivecek....

I expect it is just to give a little taste. Myslivecek's VC's are quite fine, and good fun. Pleased to have many of them. :)
