Haydn Symphony No. 64
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major
Schubert Symphony No. 5
Freddy Kempf piano
Christopher Warren-Green conductor
Continuing the Orchestra’s season-long journey through emotions in music, it explores the empathy between three great Austrian composers who supported and championed each other’s music.
Haydn’s own nickname for his Symphony No. 64 was Tempora mutantur (Times change) – perhaps inspired by the work’s radical slow movement which breaks musical rules for emotional effect. The good-natured Piano Concerto No. 17 by Haydn’s great friend Mozart is one of his very finest, and is performed in our concert by much-loved British pianist, Freddy Kempf.
From a slightly later era, Schubert made no secret of his love for the music of Mozart and Haydn, and his high-spirited Symphony No. 5 exudes the influence of both his earlier compatriots.
Proceeds from the concert will go to two leading children’s hospices:
Helen & Douglas House (UK) and Momiji House (Japan).
