Beyond the Score: Mr. Haydn Goes to London

Feb16
3:00 PM
Haydn
Sunday, February 16, 2014

Late 18th-century London was the bustling capital of an expanding empire, its citizens rapidly acquiring wealth and eagerly seeking the latest cultural delights. Who better to entertain them than the world-famous Joseph Haydn, whose newly composed, modern symphonies were bursting with brilliance, wit and deep sentiment?

Designed for newcomers to classical music and longtime aficionados alike, each Beyond the Score program takes you on a dramatic exploration of a composer’s music. With live actors, stunning visual projections and musical excerpts played by the CSO, the compelling story of the composer’s life and art unfolds, illuminating the world that shaped the work’s creation. After an intermission, the Orchestra returns to play the work in its entirety.

Join us after the Friday evening presentation for a Q&A with the Beyond the Score creative team!
