OAE - Haydn Symphonies

Presented by Ian Skelly. The OAE conducted by Edward Gardner in Haydn: Symphonies No 7 in C; No 64 in A; No 90 in C. Plus Mozart: Flute Concerto No 2 in D (Lisa Beznosiuk - flute).

Presented by Ian Skelly.

Edward Gardner conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in works from different periods of Haydn's career, performed on the original instruments.

Working alone in an isolated corner of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Haydn created music full of originality - it made him famous throughout Europe. His symphonies, written for private aristocratic entertainment, are seen as unpredictable and engaging - in ways which continue to fascinate long after his death.
