Haydn Violin Concerto

Margaret Faultless director
Henry Tong violin

Haydn Symphony no.22 in E flat, ‘The Philosopher’, Hob.I:22
Haydn Violin Concerto in C, Hob.VIIa:1
Haydn Symphony no.30 in C, ‘Alleluia’, Hob.I:30

The Academy’s Haydn symphonies project continues with a performance on historical instruments of two distinctive symphonies, plus the composer’s Violin Concerto in C. Symphony no.22, ‘The Philosopher’, is striking for its unusual texture featuring two oboes da caccia in the opening movement, and contrasts with no.30, the joyful ‘Alleluia’ Symphony, with its more conventional scoring but typically inventive use of instrumental colours.
