Orchestra of the Swan - Haydn, Vivaldi, Handel, Alec Roth

David Curtis conducts the Orchestra of the Swan in the opening concert of their season. With concertos by Haydn and Vivaldi as well as music by Handel and Alec Roth.

Presented by Catherine Bott

Live from Loughborough Town Hall

Julian Lloyd Webber joins the Orchestra of the Swan in the opening concert of their season at Loughborough Town Hall, playing concertos by Haydn and Vivaldi. Also on the programme: Alec Roth's "Departure of the Queen of Sheba", which depicts the legendary lovers in their garden of earthly delights. The concert ends with Haydn's "Farewell" Symphony, in which the players leave the stage before the work is finished - the great composer's not-too-subtle hint to his employer to give them some time off!
