Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra | Voyage of Musical Discovery – Texture & Timbre
5 August 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm AEST
Haydn wrote his second-last symphony during his time in London where he had access to a much larger orchestra, inspiring him to create new textures and timbres which highlight the sounds of the winds, brass and, particularly in this work, the timpani. The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra examines these various sounds and styles with gut strings and Classical timpani in this work, praised as “fertile and enchanting” after its premiere in London in 1795.
