Symphony No. 44 in E minor, H. I/44
Symphony No. 49 in F minor, H. I/49

Marios Papadopoulos conductor

In the second half of the eighteenth century, German writers and composers were gripped with the Sturm und Drang style, meaning ‘storm and stress’. One such composer was Franz Joseph Haydn, whose Symphonies No. 44 and No. 49 are great examples of the style, characterised by minor keys, excitingly unpredictable changes in tempo and dynamics, angular melodies, pulsing rhythms and syncopation.

Conducted by Music Director Marios Papadopoulos, this concert will be streamed for free on the Orchestra’s YouTube Channel, and is later available on demand. Reserve a free ticket in order to receive the link directly via email.

This concert was made possible by a grant from the Culture Recovery Fund via Arts Council England, and was filmed by Apple and Biscuit Recordings at the Sheldonian Theatre.
