Christian-Pierre La Marca, the “unfailingly lyrical, stylish” (Gramophone) cellist, performs with French period orchestra Le Concert de la Loge and its violinist director Julien Chauvin to present a program devised to provide the listener with a new perspective on the cello concertos of Joseph Haydn, surrounded by works of Nicola Porpora, Christoph Willibald Gluck, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  “This album tells a true story about my instrument during the classical period,” saysLa Marca. “There is a connection, a legacy from one composer to another. We wanted to show the connecting links, the filiations that run through the cello repertory during the era of Viennese Classicism, what was transmitted from one composer to another for this specific instrument, and finally the development of purely ‘cellistic’ style.”
