Music which has been given a place of honor in the classical repertoire and is loved by musicians and audiences alike can suddenly shine anew in splendor. Not played against the grain in order to achieve new effects either, but instead played with elegance, technical brilliance and profound insight. This is how the award-winning cellist Nicolas Altstaedt performs Haydn’s cello concertos in C and D major. The new Movimentos CD being released by GENUIN and the Autostadt Wolfsburg presents Papa Haydn with a true present for his anniversary year and would certainly have raised the eyebrows of his composer colleagues... The recording brims over with Sturm und Drang!

"A sensational new Haydn recording!" (FAZ Sonntagszeitung, 31 May 2009)

"So far one of the few outstanding issues during the Haydn year! We shall have to take note of the name Nicolas Altstaedt."
(CD critiques on BR4 Klassik)

"I have become enthusiastic over two Haydn recordings – and am happy to admit it. The first contains the two cello concertos with soloist Nicolas Altstaedt and the Kammerakademie Potsdam - bold, colourful and, in terms of rhythm, clever as well as uninhibited. [...]" (Peter Cossé, Österreichische Musikzeitung)

"And the two cello concertos of Haydn to be heard here are really very fresh and lively: highly virtuosic and yet with a lightness that makes one forget all the difficulties ..." (CD tip on hr 2 kultur)!

"[...] the listener does not sit full of amazement over the virtuosity of the interpreter [...] but admires the human measure in the ingenuity. [...]"
(Rheinischer Merkur 28.05.09)
