Synopsis

It's amazing how great musicians come in pairs--think of Bach and Handel, Haydn and Mozart--and often with complimentary abilities. Mozart was the ultimate concerto composer, Haydn the great symphonist. And yet each composed fine--indeed sublime--works in the other's "territory." Haydn's Violin Concertos are early works, but they have always been favored by violinists on account of their gracefully-written and elegant solo parts, to say nothing of their perfect suitability for performance by amateurs and chamber orchestras. Salvatore Accardo performs these charming pieces with consummate taste as well as a healthy dose of energy. The two cello concertos make a superb bonus, and the price is "two for one." --David Hurwitz
