Haydn: Cellos Concertos – Hétu: Rondo



Available for pre-ordering


Cellist Cameron Crozman returns with a new recording of Joseph Haydn’s Cello Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 and Jacques Hétu’s Rondo for Cello and String Orchestra, Op. 9. He joins Les Violons du Roy conducted by Nicolas Ellis.

Long thought lost, Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C was rediscovered in 1961 at the National Museum in Prague. According to the eminent Haydn scholar H. C. Robbins Landon, it is “a major discovery of our time, and surely one of the finest works of the period”. The concerto in D major was long attributed to Anton Kraft, and it wasn’t until 1951 that the discovery of an autograph manuscript finally did justice to Haydn, its true author.

Completed in 1965, Jacques Hétu’s Rondo for Cello and String Orchestra, Op. 9, was premiered on Radio-Canada by cellist Arpad Szomoru and the Orchestre de chambre de la Société Radio-Canada de Québec. The Rondo is the first concerto work by Jacques Hétu, then aged 27. It demonstrates Hétu’s taste for classical forms, his ability to highlight the strings, and his solid contrapuntal skills.
