By I. Giles TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This disc was well recorded in 1982 and still sounds good with admirable clarity and balance. The Academy of Ancient Music are reliably accurate and play with good tone and tuning and all the usual benefits of period performance are here to be appreciated. Both Christophe Coin and Hogwood are good guides to this music and Coin has an immaculate technique that rises to overcome all the challenges, especially those of high lying solo passages.

The informative sleeve notes by Robbins Landon makes it clear how much the musical world surprisingly owes to the new communist regimes in eastern Europe following on from the second World War. That change of government meant that the extensive and private musical libraries of the Esterházy family and other such families became public property and it was in this way that the C major concerto was discovered as recently as 1962 and the the autograph copy of the D major concerto verified Haydn as the composer. Beyond these two concertos there were considerable other musical treasures unearthed for the first time since Haydn's death and the musical world became that much richer.

The two concertos share much the same ground as compositions with the first movements being of a stately nature, the second movements being of sustained melodic invention with reduced orchestra and with the last movements featuring the majority of bravura passages. In general the C major work is more outgoing and justifies its favourite position but the D major concerto is not far behind in enjoyment value.

I would suggest that this disc is still a valuable pairing of these two concertos even though the playing time at just over 49 minutes could not be described as generous.

5.0 out of 5 stars for lovers of baroque music 28 Sep 2011
By Philip Badiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The word definitive is a difficult choice, especially since no-one can predict future possibilities, but I personally feel this is the definitive recording for both lovers of the cello and lovers of baroque music. The clearly intense study and even clearer passion that the Academy of Ancient Music devote to their projects is breath-taking...
I'm also a huge fan of period instrumentation, original or perfect copies of original instruments and the relatively small orchestra, which mirrors the conditions available to composers of the epoch. The sound quality is genuinely different from the modern grand orchestra and modern tuning.
Even more recomended is hearing these works live.
