Cello Concerto in C
Appalachian Spring suit
A feast of joy, light and melody – key ingredients of the concerts conducted by Olari Elts. The Cello Concerto in C ranks among Haydn’s best-loved works, and not without reason, thanks to its grace and playful rhythms. The soloist in this virtuoso concerto is Jonathan Roozeman, a young Finnish cellist fast making a name for himself on the international circuit. The theme of joy and hope also runs through Aaron Copland’s popular Appalachian Spring – a suite that won him a Music Pulitzer and was used for decades as the opening music to CBS’s current affairs programme Reports.
