Evening Masterwork: Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 2

Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Cello Concerto No. 2 in D by Franz Joseph Haydn

Evening Masterwork for August 28, 2020 – 7:00 PM on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9

The Second Cello Concerto that Franz Joseph Haydn composed is much more relaxed than the first, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it isn’t exciting. In this work, Haydn takes full advantage of the cello’s capabilities, employing techniques such as double-stops, octaves, and the upper register.  Hear it tonight at 7, our Evening Masterwork on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
