Concert Program

Symphonies and concertos of Haydn and Beethoven

Event Info

Austrian composer Joseph Haydn and German composer Ludwig van Beethoven knew each other well. In a short but significant period both lived in Vienna, the capital of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and Beethoven studied the old Haydn bible. Haydn composed one hundred and four symphonies, whereas Beethoven completed nine. Haydn wrote a long series of concerti for a wide range of solo instruments, and Beethoven completed five piano concertos, a violin concerto, and a triple concerto for violin, cello and piano. The development of the symphonies and concertos they created marks a stylistic turning point of concert music from the 18th-century classical period to the 19th-century romantic period. What were the structural principles that laid the groundwork for the innovative, dramatic and groundbreaking ideas in the great works of these two geniuses?

Works by Haydn will be performed in January 2018; works by Beethoven will be performed in January, March, May, June and July 2018
