By Kolja Blacher and Wurttembergisches Kammerorchester Heilbronn. By Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) and Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990). Classical. Hybrid SACD. Naxos #COV91711. Published by Naxos (NX.COV91711).

Item Number: NX.COV91711

This new release from Coviello features two violin concertos; both works have been recorded in an intimate chamber music atmosphere with a direct dialogue between the soloist and the orchestra. Neither of these compositions is a standard work within their genre and both were created by composers for whom the concerto played a peripheral role in their creative activities. Leonard Bernstein would never have utilized the title Concerto for any of his surviving works and concertos make up a negligible proportion of the compositional output of Joseph Haydn. Nevertheless, the Serenade by the former composer and the C major Concerto by the latter reveal a great deal about their creators and their relative historical position as is frequently the case with musical treasures off the beaten track of the musical world.
