Notes and Editorial Reviews

Rostropovich makes the cello sing superbly as he finds every kernel of meaning, while Brown always keeps in step with Rostropovich’s flair for dramatics and intensity.

For many years, my standard for Haydn’s C major and D major Concertos has been the EMI recording from Mstislav Rostropovich with Iona Brown conducting the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. These performances are treasured for their excitement and emotional investment. Rostropovich makes the cello sing superbly as he finds every kernel of meaning, while Brown always keeps in step with Rostropovich’s flair for dramatics and intensity.
