‘Haydn’s Farewell’ – Symphonies No. 45, 46 & 47

15 March 2022

Cadogan Hall, London

 

Conductor Ian Page and his award-winning ensemble The Mozartists continue their ground-breaking MOZART 250 project with three remarkable Haydn symphonies composed 250 years ago in 1772.  

Symphony No. 47 was particularly admired by Mozart, and its palindromic minuet and trio is an outrageous feat of musical engineering, while No. 46 is full of quirky invention and ‘Sturm und Drang’ turbulence. The concert culminates with the superb ‘Farewell’ Symphony (No. 45 in F sharp minor), its thrillingly iconoclastic opening movement and infinitely soulful adagio leading to the celebrated coup de théâtre of its ending.
