Joseph Haydn was no fool. When he took up his position as composer at the Esterházy Palace he knew that it was not only the Prince with whom he would need to win favour, but also the musicians of his orchestra. The results of this musical flattery were his beautiful early Symphonies Le Matin, Le Midi & Le Soir; morning, noon and evening. Haydn’s three symphonies beautifully depict the life of a day.

Each symphony features the principal players of the Esterházy Orchestra that Haydn would have had at his disposal, which was only a small band of 13-17 players. The composer himself also enjoyed showing off in the concertmaster’s chair, and thus there are many instances of flourishing violin solos. Playing the role of Maestro Haydn will be our dear friend and guest co-director, violinist Marc Destrubè from Vancouver.

To complement these great works, guest co-director and soloist Erin Helyard will perform Haydn’s thrilling Concerto for Harpsichord in D Major. A magnificent end to our 2015 season.

Venue: Utzon Room
