Join Peter Wood for the latest instalment of the Haydn Symphonies Project!

Now everybody is back after the Summer break we are resuming our journey through Haydn’s symphonies,  With 45 Haydn symphonies now behind us the 9th Haydn Project day will be held at Wylam Institute on Sunday October 21 2018 from 11.00 until 4.00.  The Symphonies we will be looking at will include: 26 (Lamentation), 65, 44 (Mourning), 43 (Mercury) and 47 all of which are “Sturm und Drang” (“Storm and Stress’”) symphonies written between 1768 and 1772. Haydn is now in his late 30s and is the Musical Director at the Esterházy court. These symphonies are scored for strings, oboes and horns and bassoons would probably have supplemented the cellos and basses.  As usual flutes and clarinets are welcome to join us to play with oboes but please note the parts are written for instruments in C and transposed parts will not be available.  This day will take us roughly to the half way point (which we may have already celebrated a bit prematurely!) and the project will continue on 12 January 2019 in York.
