Like its sibling, the Concerto in C major, Haydn’s D-major Concerto No. 2 lay shrouded in mystery until 1951, when Haydn’s autograph score was discovered.

Written between 1781 and 1783, this concerto is a more extroverted and sunny, if leisurely, work than the C-major concerto. It is almost impossible to find more relaxed movements in any other concerti by Haydn, making this an unusual and quite welcome addition to the composer’s canon. The concerto’s good nature and beautiful main theme are truly infectious and make it extremely rewarding to learn and perform. It is hardly surprising that it has remained one of the standard works in the cellist’s repertoire. This MMO edition features virtuoso Roman Wiszniowski and the Plovdiv Philharmonic in a gorgeous reference recording; then the orchestra under Maestro Todorov repeats it again minus you, the star ’cellist. A joyous and exciting experience awaits you! This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you as you learn the concerto.

The Soloist is accompanied by an orchestra.
