Two contrasting symphonies begin and close this concert. Haydn’s Drum Roll Symphony, his 103rd
symphony no less, is a work full of sparkle and zest.
In comparison to Haydn, Brahms wrote just four symphonies, and was 43 when his first symphony
was premiered. When Haydn was 43 he had composed over 50 symphonies!
Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 takes us on a journey in its four movements from despair and angst to joy and
triumph, and contains in its final movement one of the most beautiful and best-loved tunes written by
Separating these two symphonies is Vaughan Williams’ sublime work for violin and orchestra, The
Lark Ascending. Written in 1914 but put aside while Williams served in the First World War, it features a solo violin as the lark with the orchestra providing musical images of the rolling countryside. It is the work consistently voted the nation’s favourite classic.
