      Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra - Program 2: Quintessence of Classical Style

      Location: Bing Concert Hall

      The two composers who most clearly defined the style we know as “Classical” are Haydn and Mozart, and this concert will put their prodigious compositional gifts on display. Mozart and Haydn were great friends from 1784, and often played together in an impromptu string quartet (imagine!). Mozart’s greatest influence as a composer, however, was Johann Christian Bach, J.S. Bach’s youngest son, whom Mozart idolized and visited in London in 1764 and 1765.

      Program:

      Haydn: Symphony No. 44 in E minor
      “Trauer”; J.C. Bach: Sinfonia Concertante for Oboe and Bassoon in F major; J.C. Bach: Symphony Op. 6, No. 6 in G minor; Mozart: Symphony No. 29 in A Major, K. 201
