Notes & Reviews:

"This is another Philips reissue on the Newton Label. It is exactly the same as Philips 438797...The cello concertos are warm and rich, with full cello tone. If you like the sheer sound of the instrument, you will be happy...The two cello concertos are great works. The three violin concertos...are thoroughly likeable, and Accardo is a very likeable violinist. None of this even faintly resembles "period instruments" and we are sincerely thankful for that...The sound in everything was always utterly perfect, so there is certainly no need to replace previous incarnations with this one. But if you don't know these recordings or these pieces, you will soon find out why some of us had this in our collection for years."-American Record Guide

Most of the concertos on this disc were written during the early years of Haydn's employment at Esterhßzy Palace. They were written to be played by some of the 'stars' of that establishment's orchestra. The violin concertos in A and G were pretty certainly written in the early 1760s, to be performed by Luigi Tomasini (1741 - 1808), the Pesaro-born violinist and composer who was then concertmaster of the Esterhßzy orchestra. The cello concerto in C seems to have been written for Joseph Weigl (1740 - 1820), principal cellist of the orchestra and a particular friend of Haydn's. The concerto in F, for violin and harpsichord (or positiv organ) probably belongs to the middle of the 1750s and thus predates Haydn's years at Esterhßzy; so too, probably, does the violin concerto in C. The cello concerto in D is a much later work, composed in 1783 for Anton Kraft and long imagined to be by the cellist himself, until Haydn's autograph manuscript was discovered at the beginning of the 1950s. For the most part, however, the music to be heard on this disc belongs to Haydn's thirties.
