Paul McCreesh conductor

Guy Johnston cello


MOZART Idomeneo: Ballet Music

HAYDN Cello Concerto No.1


MENDELSSOHN Symphony No.3 ‘Scottish’


Paul McCreesh conducts the Royal Northern Sinfonia in Mozart’s ballet score Idomeneo. Mozart isn’t usually associated with ballet, yet here is some of the greatest dance music ever written. The refinement and lyricism so abundant in Mozart’s music is matched in his friend Haydn’s First Cello Concerto. The soloist in this lovely work is Guy Johnston, one of the most exciting and versatile British cellists of his generation.

Mendelssohn’s highly ambient ‘Scottish’ Symphony, another musical homage to Caledonia, evokes misty glens, magnificent mountains and Scotland’s distinctive folk music.
