WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: CPE Bach Cello Concerto

Haydn: Symphony No 93
CPE Bach: Cello Concerto in A minor
Mendelssohn: Symphony No 3 ‘Scottish’

Richard Egarr: conductor; Philip Higham: cello

Mozart wrote “He is the father, we are the children…” Haydn, Beethoven and Mendelssohn also venerated and learned from Bach. Not JS Bach: his son Carl Philipp Emanuel. CPE’s cello concerto shows why: it takes off thrillingly, like a rocket, but the storm yields to a truly lovely slow movement.

Egarr opens and closes with wonderful symphonies. Mendelssohn’s ‘Scottish’ needs little introduction and while Haydn’s 93rd has no catchy name, a critic at the premiere wrote that it “inspired all of the performers [and] audience with enthusiastic ardour… it gave additional consequence to the soul and feelings of every individual present.”
