Handel and Haydn Society / Harry Christophers
Haydn comes to life in a new live recording that showcases one of his ‘Paris’ Symphonies, L’ours, a festive and jubilant work commissioned by a Parisian orchestra in the 1780s. Symphony No 6, Le matin, characterized by its unusual virtuoso writing across the orchestra, is also featured. Handel and Haydn Society concertmaster, Aisslinn Nosky, makes her solo debut in Haydn’s Violin Concerto in G major.
