Description: The other two works here are standards on CD by now but the odd concerto by Haydn (an alternate version of one which used harpsichord as the keyboard instrument) is very hard to find. Camerata had one but used the bizarre “claviorgan” and Phoenix Edition offered a 1972 archival radio recording in a 2009 release which we offered but that short-lived imprint is dead and has not risen from its ashes, so here’s another chance for any collector who’d like it (it’s not short - over 30 minutes) and hasn’t got it. Andra Dārzina (viola), Jürgen Essl (organ), Urban Camerata.
