Dunedin Consort is joined by guest director and harpsichordist Peter Whelan for this sparkling trilogy of early Haydn symphonies.

Composed in his early days at the Court of Eszterháza, together they trace a journey from early morning sunrise, through the bright splendour of midday to a fun-filled, celebratory evening. And at the centre, Dunedin Consort's very own Jonathan Manson performs C.P.E. Bach’s sunny cello concerto in A major. These orchestral gems demand virtuosic playing from every member of the ensemble - the perfect showcase for Dunedin Consort’s fearless instrumentalists.
