Haydn + Mozart
2021-22 Season • 1h 43m
Mozart’s sunny First Violin Concerto highlights this concert of classical delights performed with H+H’s signature freshness and verve, led by Harry Christophers in one of his final performances as Artistic Director. Aisslinn Nosky is front and center for our Orchestra’s premiere of Mozart’s spirited Violin Concerto No. 1. You’ll be wowed by Haydn’s Drum Roll Symphony performed “the H+H way”—sounding fresh and authentic as it did on the day of its premiere—starting with a dramatic timpani flourish. Haydn’s mass honoring the Empress Maria Theresia is at once robust, solemn, and serene in its final plea for peace and provides a showcase for the artistry of our illustrious Chorus.
