Starker Plays Haydn Cello Concertos
Celebrate with Delos International this exciting new release from the world-renowned Master of the cello Janos Starker. In partnership with Maestro Gerard Schwarz and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Starker brings the sublime music of Haydn to the classical listening consumer. Recorded at Queens Hall in Edinburgh, these expressive classical period chamber jewels - Concerto No.1 in C Major and No.2 in D Major - traverse many emotions and themes and could have been composed for, and dedicated to, the technical mastery of Starker. Starker has been christened 'the king of cellists' and is recognized throughout the world as one of the greatest virtuso cellists and musicians of our era. Born in Budapest in 1924, and currently a Distinguished Professor at Indiana University's School of Music, Starker is as noted for his scholarship as his expansive and inspiring performances. Haydn's Cello Concertos No.1 & 2 featured on this timely release serve as 'Greatest Hits' for the cello and belong in each collection, and all classical sections. This exceptional offering brings Delos' technical reputation, the artistry of Starker & Schwarz, and this saleable repertoire into an unbeatable trio.
