Willoughby Symphony Choir: Haydn’s The Seasons
6 May @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEST
First performed in 1801, The Seasons is in four parts. We experience the glories of the countryside through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter including a summer storm, hunting episodes, daybreak, winter fog, peasant dances and even frogs croaking. One of the greatest works of the century, this large-scale oratorio features a talented orchestra, choir and three soloists, with recitatives, arias, choruses and ensemble sections.
This performance will feature a special new translation by Paul McCreesh, the Artistic Director of the Gabrieli Consort & Players. Don’t miss it!
