From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.
Mariss Jansons and his Dutch orchestra perform Haydn's Military Symphony, composed on his second visit to London in 1794-95, at a time when England and Holland were allied with Austria against republican France.
According to an early review, the slow movement - graphically portraying 'the hellish roar of war increase to a climax of horrid sublimity' - was greeted with repeated cries of 'Encore! in which the Ladies themselves could not forbear to join.'
