OAE: Steven Isserlis performs Haydn

Part of Classical Season

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment presents a programme featuring Steven Isserlis playing Haydn's Cello Concerto, and Beethoven's Symphony No.7.

Once thought lost to the dustbin of history, Haydn's Cello Concerto in C was rediscovered in the 1960s and is now a firm favourite, performed here by cello legend Steven Isserlis.

OAE pairs it with Beethoven's Symphony No.7. Featured heavily in the film The King's Speech, it is among his most enigmatic pieces, subject to many differing interpretations over the years and enjoyed for its delicate second movement and ecstatic finale.
