RUSH HOUR #2: ELATION
Joseph Haydn Symphony No.88
Felix Mendelssohn Symphony No.4 'Italian'
Chloé van Soeterstede conductor

There is never a dull moment when it comes to Haydn’s music. Just when you think you know where you are, safe from any sudden surprises, he hits you with an unexpected twist to keep you on the edge of your seat. From the very start of his Symphony No.88 the music lures us in and seems to meander before kicking into gear with an unabashed joy for life. 

There is no risk of a gentle introduction in Mendelssohn’s feisty ‘Italian’ Symphony which bursts out the gates in a confident gallop, dashing through the Mediterranean countryside. This musical postcard captures the optimistic youth of a composer who is seeing the beautiful extremities of the world for the first time and crafting a unique voice which feels fresh, even today.

Book your free ticket online, then give what you can on the night.
