Cellist Zuill Bailey is a Grammy Award winner, distinguished soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, artistic director, and teacher. After several recordings of 20th and 21st century works and American music, Bailey shifts his focus to the delightfully effervescent, elegant, and melodic works of Haydn, one of the earliest composers to write concertos for the cello. The two concertos by Haydn, written almost 20 years apart, both fully exploit the instrument’s wide range and capabilities with quick runs, passagework, and double stops.
