One of Australia’s finest keyboard players, expert in historically-informed performance, respected musical director and co-director of Pinchgut Opera, Dr Erin Helyard, leads this jubilant concert of classical masterworks and is soloist in Mozart’s piano concerto no.14.
World-leading exponent in historical cello playing – Daniel Yeadon, joins AHE again as soloist following his brilliant performance of CPE Bach’s A minor concerto last year. Haydn’s cello concerto in C Major, despite being one of his most performed works for the cello, is rarely heard on period instruments. This will be a treat for audiences to hear this beloved work in its original way.
Helyard’s “energetic and inspiring leadership” combined with the “precise and elegant playing” of the AHE in two early Haydn symphonies should make for exciting listening.
