Kicking off the program is the almost-never performed work, the C minor Allegro, written for String Orchestra. They are graciously indebted to young Franz Schubert for their opener. From the wonderful lines of the stormy Allegro, they move on to Papa Haydn, the only “live-in” composer who served the Eszterhazy Family for decades, and wrote more than 100 symphonies, including the rarely performed No. 80, a delightful musical gem, presented on this concert. Of his two Violoncello Concerti, the audience is fortunate to hear MCO’s own principal perform the exquisite Concerto in C major, originally written for Haydn’s “live-in” principal cellist Anton Kraft, a distinguished member of the “live-in” orchestra.

Featured solo cellist László Mezö was born in Budapest, Hungary, and gained national recognition upon winning first prize in the Kertész Ottó Memorial Competition in 1998. International recognition followed after winning first prize in the Ima Hogg International Competition in Houston, Texas.
