Featured Soloist: Julie Reimann will be performing on an Italian cello made in the early 1800s, likely around 50 to 60 years after Haydn wrote the C major cello concerto. It is from the Neapolitan school, which was founded by the Gagliano family of luthiers. This cello was restored to its current amazing condition through the work of Curtis Bryant, who is himself also a fine maker of original cellos.
