About the event
“There is probably no more inspirational musician working today” says Gramophone about violinist Rachel Podger, whose sparkling Tafelmusik debut more than a decade ago left a lasting impression on our musicians and audiences alike. Podger makes her long-awaited return as soloist and director in a program of classical symphonies and concertos by Mozart, Haydn, and their contemporaries.
Our award-winning recordings of Haydn symphonies are widely admired, and this concert is anchored by one of the most dramatic, Symphony no 49. Nicknamed “La Passione,” the work epitomizes the Sturm und Drang style, a precursor to romanticism. Smouldering with intensity, Haydn’s symphony offers early glimmers of the romantic style that would eventually flourish decades later.
