Join Peter Wood for the latest instalment of the Haydn Symphonies Project.
He says:
With 45 Haydn symphonies now behind us we are going to clear another batch before the Summer break.  The 9th Haydn Project day will be held at Eldon Community Centre on Saturday July 14 from 11.00 until 4.00.  The Symphonies we will be looking at are: 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 30’s 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 I think we have already celebrated a bit prematurely!) and the project will continue in October (venue and date to be confirmed shortly).  The enrolment form is attached and I look forward to seeing you all at Eldon for the next step in this marathon journey. 

Please note, that tea/coffee and cake will be available at Eldon but not lunches this time (she’s on holiday!) so please bring your own lunch!

The enrolment form can be found here
