Haydn's Concerti Recorded in Germany

June 26, 2007

Two recent recording sessions, held over the course of one week, have yielded new recordings of eight concerti by Joseph Haydn.

Five keyboard concerti were recorded between May 11 and 14, 2007. Three were performed on the organ: Concerto C Hob.XVIII:1, Concerto C Hob.XVIII:8, Concerto C Hob.XVIII:10. Two were performed on the harpsichord: Concerto C Hob.XVIII:5 and Concerto F Hob.XVIII:7.

The second set of sessions took place from May 15 to 18, and resulted in the recording of three violin concerti: Concerto C Hob.VIIa:1, Concerto A Hob.VIIa:3, and Concerto G Hob.VIIa:4.

The star soloists for these concerti were organist Harald Hoeren, harpsichordist Ketil Haugsand and Augustin Hadelich, Gold Medalist of the 2006 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. The recording ensemble was the venerable Kölner Kammerorchester (Cologne Chamber Orchestra), led by their longtime conductor Helmut Müller-Brühl, a featured pairing on numerous distinguished Naxos recordings. Harald Hoeren has previously recorded for Naxos. Ketil Haugsand and Augustin Hadelich make their label débuts with these recordings.

The sessions, produced by Ludwig Rink and engineered by Stephan Schmidt, were held at Concert Studio DeutschlandRadio in Cologne, Germany.
