The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is joined by cellist Anastasia Kobekina, winner of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival 2024 Leonard Bernstein Award. Described by Le Figaro as an “unrivalled musician”, Kobekina will perform Haydn’s C major cello concerto, a masterpiece that was lost and unheard for almost two centuries. This unearthed treasure of a concerto, which pushes the boundaries of the baroque form, was written during Haydn’s earliest years in Eisenstadt with the Esterházy family around the time he was composing his first symphonies.

Kobekina also performs Stravinsky’s Suite Italienne, one of several spin offs from his hugely popular ballet Pulcinella, which Stravinsky had based on music he had believed was by Pergolesi but was in fact by Domenico Gallo, whose Follia also features in this programme.
