    What is left for this musician to aspire to? A famous chamber player in demand at the most prestigious venues, artist-in-residence at the Elbphilharmonie, and recent winner of the prestigious Duisburg Music Prize (following in the footsteps of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau and Krzysztof Penderecki) – Franco-German cellist Nicolas Altstaedt goes from strength to strength. This passionate performer and musical and artistic director of great finesse will play and conduct Haydn’s First Cello Concerto, which demonstrates haughty eighteenth-century elegance but is already imbued with a nineteenth century spirit of curiosity. Haydn continues to cast a shadow over Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony. Why was the later work less successful in its day than its predecessor? « Because it is much better », replied the composer without hesitation.
