Joseph Haydn: Violin Concertos

by Zsolt Kalló (violin); Capella Savaria (on period instruments); Nicholas McGegan (conductor)

In the Haydn Catalogue, compiled by Anthony van Hoboken, there are four original violin concertos, but only three of them have survived. ese were composed by Haydn in his early years, during the rst decade of his employment by the Esterházy family. As for their style, concertos are compositions that faithfully re ect the traditions prevailing in the mid-18th century: they preserve the established Baroque solutions on the one hand but they also reveal some Rococo, so-called “galant” elements, introduced in the 1740s.
