About

Multiple award-winning cellist Christoph Croise debuts on AVIE giving fresh and fervent interpretations of Haydn’s two Cello Concertos with the Eurasian Soloists Chamber Orchestra, whose leader Sherniyaz Mussakhan joins him in Vivaldi’s Concerto for Violin and Cello, RV547.

Winner of the Berliner International Music Competition, the Prix Jeune Soliste des Medias Francophones Publics, and the International Manhattan Music Competition, young cellist Christoph Croise debuts on AVIE performing the two Cello Concertos by Franz Joseph Haydn.

His fresh and fervent approach is matched by his collaborators, the Eurasian Soloists Chamber Orchestra, as they recreate the original set up of the works’ first performances in the Esterhazy Castle when the composer directed from the harpsichord alongside the first violinist and the soloist. Christoph concludes the album with Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Violin and Cello, RV547, joined by the orchestra’s founder and director, Kazakh violinist Sherniyaz Mussakhan.

Reviews

This conductor-less release from Avie manages to capture something too often lost in recordings of the early cello concerto repertoire: fun. ... His first recording of a cello concerto from the canon, Christoph Croisé’s offering of Haydn’s Concerto No 1 in C is an act of humility met with stunning virtuosity. ... The Concerto in D, the lesser known of the Haydn pair, makes for almost equal enjoyment. ... The recording finishes with Vivaldi’s Concerto for violin and cello, RV547... The entire ensemble is spot-on, swerving in the surprises of Vivaldi’s harmonic language.  Mark Seow
Gramophone April 2019
