Mozart
Overture: The Magic Flute
Haydn
Sinfonia concertante
Beethoven
Symphony no. 6 (Pastoral)

Conductor: Bruno Weil

After the bustling overture to Mozart’s last opera comes Haydn’s genial and engaging work. Written at the height of his popularity during his second visit to London, it’s a concerto for four soloists – violin, cello, oboe and bassoon – who swap the musical material between themselves and with the orchestra in delightful style. The impulse behind the Pastoral symphony was Beethoven’s deep love of the Austrian countryside. The five movements of Beethoven’s symphony encompass the joys of solitary contemplation and a peasants’ celebration, a summer thunderstorm, and a final hymn of thanksgiving
