Josph Haydn’s London Symphonies with Bruno Weil
Bruno Weil devised a cycle of the London Symphonies by Joseph Haydn presented with moderation in English. In six concerts, each featuring two of the London symphonies, Bruno Weil takes up the cudgels for Joseph Haydn, who to this day unfairly remains in the shadow of Mozart and Beethoven.
The six programs with the headings
“Der Anfang” (The Beginning)
“Mozarts Tod” (Mozart’s Death)
“Der Paukenschlag” (The Drumroll)
“Die Uhr” (The Clock)
“Die Vollendung” (Fulfilment)
may be easily divided over two or three seasons, or played separately. They can also be supplemented with the two oratorios “The Creation” and “The Seasons”.
