starker's haydn cadenza

Cello Concerto No. 2 in D major, Hob. VIIb/2 (Op. 101) : I : Allegro moderato (cadenza only - written by Starker)

Janos Starker (cello), Gerard Schwarz and Scottish Chamber Orchestra

 I think its brilliant…with what I feel is a little Kodály influence in his writing. either way…the double stop passage is phenomenal and the effortless double trills near the end….wow. 1:30-1:42 is just jaw dropping.
