Although more than 8 concerts for cello and orchestra are ascribed to Haydn, only two seem to be almost definitely ascribable to the Austrian composer: one in C major and the other in D major. They have become common repertoire, and are generally considered among the most interesting after Vivaldi’s, marking the passage between the Baroque and the Classic period. This recording ends with a far less known concert, by Moravian composer Pavel Vranický. In his times he was greatly appraised by the Habsburgs, by Haydn himself, by Mozart and Beethoven.
