Renowned cellist Steven Isserlis returns to the Bay Area to perform Haydn’s popular D Major Cello Concerto in a program that reflects Haydn’s rightful reputation as the “father of the symphony.” Nic and Haydn have a synergy of ebullience and good humor that has earned them GRAMMY® nominations, and the distinct sound of our period instrument orchestra brings out the composer’s masterful attention to instrumental color.
