      Haydn: Violin Concerto in G major, Hob VIIa:4 (18:29)

      Concerto Köln / Midori Seiler, violin

      Joseph Haydn’s violin concertos belong in the category of rarely performed works in the genre – unjustly, since their quality and originality are in no way inferior to the popular concertos of Mozart and Beethoven. According to Midori Seiler, “Haydn’s lavish palette of tone colors comes out fully here, as does his subtle humor, as well as his determination and the profound nature of his compositions. There is certainly a hint of the sound of the Baroque era, but there are also ideas that reach far into the future.”
