Since her debut with Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto, the Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang has continued to delight the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.
Haydn’s sojourn in England, lasting several years, made him an admirer of George Frideric Handel’s music. Handel was still very popular there at that time and it was Handel’s ›Messiah‹ that inspired Haydn to write his ›Creation‹. The overture to this Baroque oratorio is performed in conjunction with two London symphonies: No. 95 has no name but is the only one of the twelve in a minor key. It has no slow introduction and, in comparison with the others, is extremely short. No. 98 might have adopted one of several names: »The National Anthem« – as the beginning of the second movement is reminiscent of ›God save the King‹, or »The Harpsichord« but we will not be letting on here regarding the nature of this joke!
Please note: this event is subject to the 2G rule. Admission is restricted to those who have fully vaccinated or recovered status.
