Haydn’s Cello Concerto
The Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major, was composed by J. Haydn around 1761-65 for his longtime friend Joseph Franz Weigl, the principal cellist of Prince Nicolaus’s orchestra. Shrouded in mystery and presumed lost until 1961, the concerto was rediscovered when musicologist oldrich Pulkert found a copy of the score at the Prague National Museum.
Mozart’s Symphony No. 29
Mozart is known for his clean, pure, lively, and fun to play music. Characterised as a landmark in classical music, Symphony No. 29 was completed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1774. Along with his Symphony No. 25, it is one his better-known pieces and is a combination of intimate, chamber-style music and a still, fiery manner.
One of today’s most exciting young musician, Harriet Krijgh is a 25-year-old Dutch cellist. Known for her grace and elegance, her expressive performances touch her audiences as soon as she takes the concert platform. Harriet Krijgh often performs with orchestras like the Frankfurt and Vienna Radio Symphonies, the Netherlands and Copenhagen Philharmonic, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra among others.
