This January, the English Baroque Soloists and John Eliot Gardiner will be joined by Isabelle
Faust and Antoine Tamestit, two of today’s most revelatory and poetic performers, for a
programme of dazzling orchestral works by Haydn and Mozart, with performances at: Kölner
Philharmonie, Cologne (9 January 2023); Scharoun Theater, Wolfsburg, (10 January, 2023);
Musikverein, Vienna (11 January 2023); St Martin-in-the-Fields, London (13 January 2023);
Müpa, Budapest (14 January, 2023) and Isarphilharmonie, Munich (16 January 2023).
The programme comprises:
Haydn – Symphony No. 84 in E-flat major
Mozart – Sinfonia Concertante for violin, viola and orchestra in E-flat major
Mozart – Symphony No. 36 in C major “Linz”
Isabelle Faust and Antoine Tamestit are the ideal partners for Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante,
which plumbs the depths of pathos in its slow movement but also reveals sonorous grandeur,
a yearning lyricism and, in the end, a skittish wit. Both soloists have worked closely with John
Eliot Gardiner, the English Baroque Soloists and Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique
with great success. Highlights include Antoine Tamestit performing Berlioz’s Harold en Italie
in 2018, Isabelle Faust performing Mozart’s Violin Concertos in April 2022 and both soloists
performing Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante in 2018.
