Haydn: Violin Concerto No. 1
With the advent of the Super Audio CD, there finally came a system making it possible to release the magnificent multi-channel DG recordings from their 1970s catalog in the quality they deserve and enable these magnificent sound flowers to come into full bloom. The latest flower to unfurl its petals is this SACD of Joseph Haydn’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in C major and his Sinfonia Concertante in B flat major. One of the leading violinists of the 20th c., Pinchas Zukerman, former Principal Cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Ronald Leonhard, oboist Barbara Winters and bassoonist David Breidenthal, together with the LA Philharmonic feature in outstanding performances of often neglected repertoire by the great Classical master, and finally realized in the finest available sound quality.
