HAYDN Cello Concerto in C
KODALY Dances of Galanta
VERESS Transylvanian Dances
MOZART Symphony 38 ‘Prague’
Inspirational French/German cellist and director Nicolas Altstaedt is one of Europe’s most charismatic and captivating musicians. He brings a fresh approach to masterpieces by Mozart and Haydn – and also looks eastwards to the vibrant music of Hungary and Romania.
Altstaedt summons the spirit of Esterházy in Haydn’s captivating Cello Concerto, while the sonic spectacle of Mozart’s Symphony No. 38 was designed specifically to impress discerning listeners in the Bohemian capital.
In between, Zoltán Kodály adds orchestral sophistication to colourful dances from his Hungarian homeland, while Sándor Veress looks further east into what’s now Romania for the whirling energy of his Transylvanian Dances.
Please note: This is a matinee performance starting at 2pm.
