Following a successful debut performance at Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, the ECO joins flautist Ana de la Vega and oboist Ramon Ortega Quero for a programme including double concertos by Haydn and Stamitz.
A combination of instruments barely explored since the great Swiss collaboration of Heinz Holliger and Aurèle Nicolet in the early 1980s, the ECO and star soloists Ana de la Vega (flute) and Ramón Ortega Quero (oboe) bring to life some of Haydn’s very late works – commissions by King Ferdinand of Naples – and forgotten gems by Karl Stamitz which have remained in manuscript for over 300 years. Full of life, genius and operatic charm, these works uncover the mystic love affair between the flute and oboe – a relationship intrinsic, almost cornerstone, to the symphonic repertoire, now bought to the fore.
