About This Performance
Haydn's Sinfonia concertante for a quartet of soloists (violin, cello, oboe, and bassoon) with orchestra comes from his first trip to London, in the winter of 1791-1792. It was composed with a certain amount of stressful haste to meet concert demands, but the result was a joyful charmer that revels in the combinations the solo instruments offer.
Come for: One of our all-time favorite early music conductors leads gloriously melodic works, from Bach to Schubert. The latter composed this Haydn-inspired symphony during his unbelievably productive 18th year.
And more: Showpieces by Bach and Haydn spotlight some of the LA Phil's orchestral leaders.
