Altstaedt makes his entrance at the Storioni Festival surrounded by major musicians. He chooses Haydn’s succinct first cello concert. Haydn wrote early in his career; it sparkles, shines, it is such lively work. The finale a true fireball of which every cellist of consequence feels; I can do it faster… Miklós Rósza’s music, also played by Altstaedt, is more familiar then you think: the Hungarian composed the scores for Ben Hur and Ivanhoe.
