The concert opens with Haydn and Ives, poignantly performed back-to-back, as a reflection of the world’s descent into pandemic chaos juxtaposed with the uncertainty of the new world that awaits.
On a more optimistic note APO Principal Bassoon Ingrid Hagan takes on Mozart’s delightfully frothy Bassoon Concerto. This is the first concerto Mozart wrote for a wind instruments and it shows off the instrument’s elegance and lyrical agility.
Dvořák’s Sixth Symphony is sometimes regarded as his ‘Pastoral Symphony’. The mood of the entire work is warm and tranquil, inspired by Czech folk music and revealing the composer in his most characteristic guise.
