Haydn IN LONDON
Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Nicholas McGegan conductor
Gerard McBurney creative director
Late eighteenth-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?
