JOSEPH HAYDN / C.P.E. BACH
Haydn & CPE Bach: Cello Concertos
Steven Isserlis, The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen

[ Hyperion / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 1 September 2017

If the two Haydn concertos are the most accomplished contributions to the cello's burgeoning repertoire written in the eighteenth century, the CPE Bach coupling is scarcely less fine. Two charmingly rococo encores complete this latest essential release from Steven Isserlis.

"This recording is a real tonic. I defy anyone not to smile at Steven Isserlis's effervescent readings of Haydn's graceful and urbane cello concertos...He spins an exquisitely light and agile line, maintaining a delightfully sunny disposition, even in each concerto's adagio...The Bremen players add just the right degree of elegance and poise to make this a CD to treasure." Obserever Five Stars

"His partnership with the brilliant Bremen orchestra is a musical marriage made in heaven." Sunday Times

"These interpretations sing of an artist still thoroughly in tune with his prevoius thoughts, but who is keen to develop those ideas further. He's supported every step of the way in this pursuit by the warmly responsive Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen...Isserlis's 1998 recording [of the Haydn] remains classy stuff, but this has superbly trumped it." Gramophone Disc of the Month Awards Issue 2017
