Haydn La fedeltà premiata
Haydn Cello Concerto in C
Beethoven Symphony No 7
Adam Fischer conductor
Steven Isserlis cello
Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C is one of music’s enigmatic pieces, lost for two centuries before its rediscovery in the 1960s.
It demands great skills from the soloists, so who better to perform it than British cello legend Steven Isserlis, under the careful guidance of Haydn expert Ádám Fischer. Then enjoy Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, made famous all over again as the soundtrack to Colin Firth’s eve of war address to Britain in the film The King’s Speech.

It was my first international tour, and my first freelance work with the OAE, having been a member of the Ann and Peter Law Experience Scheme this year.Read More
