  • Haydn: Concertos

    January 2016

  • Haydn: Concertos
  • Co-chief conductors Riccardo Minasi and Maxim Emelyanychev take turns on the podium leading this period-instrument band in a rousing collection of concertos by Haydn. Il Pomo d'Oro has been hailed "a wonderful ensemble, and Minasi an outstanding musician" capable of "bringing the house down with his virtuosity" (The Guardian). Emelyaychev's award-winning harpsichord joins Minasi's violin in the soloists' spotlight, along with the distinguished natural horn of Johannes Hinterholzer. The concertos are complemented by Haydn's Symphony No 83 (known as The Hen, because of the ‘clucking’ figures on the strings in its second movement) and his Keyboard Fantasia Hob.XVII:4.

    Il pomo d'oro | Riccardo Minasi

    Though the title Giovincello seems to make a specific musical reference, it is simply an affectionate Italian term meaning ‘young man’. Edgar Moreau brings his youthful energy and virtuosic thrills to 18th-century cello concertos by Haydn, Vivaldi, Boccherini, Platti, and the world-premiere recording of a Baroque concerto by Carlo Graziani.

    Vivaldi was known in the XVIIIth century as a great violonist. He composed more than 90 concertos, some of which are said to be unplayable. Henceforth, two of the greatest baroque violonists of the new generation accompanied by the spiritic ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro are performing the most spectacular concertos of the Venetian genious.

  • Dmitry Sinkovsky, violin and conducting

    Dmitry Sinkovsky pays tribute to the German violinist Johann Georg Pisendel, member of the Dresden orchestra, that spent a long time in Venice in 1716-1717. Vivaldi and Pisendel became very close friends and the Prete Rosso composed several works for Pisendel. This series of 7 concertos is an overview of the complete art of Vivaldi as a composer and violinist: large scale of music, invention, expression, energy, power of evocation, considerable virtuosity.
