Joseph Martin Kraus: Symphony in C minor
Joseph Haydn: Cello concerto No. 2 in D major, Hob. VIIb:2
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Menuets from K 461
Joseph Haydn: Symphony No. 13 in D major, Hob. I:13
Michael Hofstetter uses Viennese classical music of contagiously good mood to chase away all traces of November gloom. Mozart’s German Dances spread the spirit of Carnival in the middle of autumn. Haydn’s sparkling Cello Concerto No. 2 is in the best possible hands when played by Natalie Clein. She also turns the Adagio from his Symphony No. 13 into a bloomy cello song. Only the Symphony in C minor by Kraus opens a window to a more rousing tone. When the “Swedish Mozart” came to Vienna in 1783, Haydn acknowledged his “great style”.
