From refinement and elegance to fiery drama, discover some gems of the Classical era in the company of one of today’s most compelling exponents of historical performance. Formerly the SCO’s Principal Bassoon, conductor Peter Whelan is Artistic Director of the Irish Baroque Orchestra and the Marsyas Ensemble, and is celebrated internationally for his style and verve.
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach – Johann Sebastian’s second surviving son – offers punchy, dramatic music in one of the first pieces to be called a symphony, while Haydn – who refined and perfected the form – set out to surprise and delight London audiences with his deeply emotional Symphony No 102.
In between, renowned British soprano Anna Dennis joins the Orchestra for two contrasting concert arias by Mozart: the first comic and acrobatic, the second full of charm and grace.
