Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Paris

A display of principle works of the Baroque and Classical eras

In this concert given at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées on the 8th of November 2016, The Paris Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of British conductor Jonathan Cohen, display some of the less popular works by great composers. This concert offers a chance to hear the equally high-quality composing, which is often neglected in favour of each composers’ ‘classics’. The concert opens with Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: Symphony in G Major. Having the same surname as Johan Sebastian Bach would put much pressure on a composer. However, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s triumphant works show mastery of orchestral and string composing, even when placed alongside his namesake’s work. Second, we hear Joseph Haydn: Concerto No. 2 in D Major for Cello and Orchestra Op. 101. Then, we hear a second work by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: the Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in A Major. Next, soloist Anne Gastinel plays the Prelude from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Suite No. 2 for cello in D Minor. Finally, Haydn’s G Major “Surprise” Symphony closes the concert.
