Jonathan Nott, conductor
Jean-Guihen Queyras, cello
Music by master and student. Haydn described with vivid imagination The World of the Moon (Il Monda della luna). Considered lost for many years, the Cello Concerto in C was rediscovered in 1961; it immediately became a classic among cellists due to its melodic inventiveness and rich virtuosity. Beethoven helped rewrite music history with his Symphony No. 4, situated somewhere between the heroism of the past and a dramatic evocation of future destiny, while expressing a joie de vivre seldom heard in his output.
