This boxed set includes all the surviving concertos of Haydn as well as some of the works which have been attributed to the composer. Haydn is not primarily known for his concertos, yet beacons such as the Trumpet Concerto and the D major Cello Concerto remain justly and universally popular. Included alongside these works are five concertos for two lire organizzate (performed on two recorders/two flutes/flute and oboe), ten keyboard concertos (performed on harpsichord/organ/piano), the three violin concertos, and the ‘little’ D major Cello Concerto among others. This wonderfully varied set thus throws a spotlight on a less-celebrated area of Haydn’s extraordinary output.
