This review is from: Haydn: Cello Concertos 1 & 2 (Audio CD)
Both these concertos are Haydn at his best. Wit, invention and lyricism abound. And who better to bring out the beauty of this music than the incomparable Rostropovich. His innate musicality pervades the music and his effortless virtuosity is put wholly at the service of Haydn. There may be some critics who will find these performances rather dated in their style and look for more authenticity. But with music-making as good as this there is surely room for varying interpretations which show different facets of Haydn's mastery.
Anyone who treasures Haydn will fall in love with this disc as Rostropovich is a flawless advocate.
