Christophe Coin, director and cello soloist
“The integrity and musicianly character of these performances is in no small measure heightened by the presence of Christophe Coin.” – Gramophone
“If God wanted to speak to man through music, he would do so through Haydn’s works; if, however, he wished to listen to music himself, he would choose the works of Boccherini.” – Jean Baptiste Cartier, 1798
One of the world’s foremost period cellists, Christophe Coin, makes his Tafelmusik debut. He joins us to perform Hadyn’s masterful Cello concerto in C Major, a piece which dynamically demonstrates the many facets of the cello, and is considered one of the best concertos for any instrument from the early classical period.
The concert also includes an inspired concerto by Boccherini, the Italian composer widely considered to be the first cello virtuoso, and one of Dittersdorf’s atmospheric symphonies inspired by Ovid’sMetamorphoses, in this case the story of Perseus’ rescue of Andromeda.
