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 don't know if this performance has been mentioned, but it's insanely good and I need to purchase it:

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. :)

I expect most of you don't know that I spent much of February in hospital, and it has taken me a while to be able to read and write again. But the subject of this essay was too compelling to ignore for longer, and my long overdue look at the Kaiserlied is now published. Hope you enjoy it. :)
