    A Classic Innovation The Symphony

    Handel: Sinfonia from Saul
    Boyce: Symphony in B flat major, Op. 2 No. 1
    Haydn: Symphony No. 45 in F sharp minor, ‘Farewell’

    The emerging genre of the symphony allowed progressive composers in the 18th century to embrace large-scale forms and rich orchestration, giving rise to a new wave of invention, expression and effects. This concert celebrates the evolution of the form, from its beginnings as an overture to larger works through to Haydn, the ‘Father of the Symphony’ whose radical ‘Farewell’ Symphony was composed at a time during which, he said, ‘I was isolated from the world, no one near me could confuse and torment me, and so I had to become original’.
