Not everyone likes conductor Sir Roger Norrington's preference to have no vibrato in the strings for any piece written before 1930. But it brings an interesting character to the Haydn Cello Concerto that Jean-Guihen Queyras played a couple of weeks ago at London's BBC Proms with Norrington and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony.
