MOZART Overture to The Marriage of Figaro
HAYDN Violin Concerto in A major
MOZART Serenade No 9 in D Major, K320 “Posthorn”
Who’s heard of Michael Haydn? Alina Ibragimova and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment present music by Joseph Haydn’s oft-ignored, but almost as prolific, younger brother. Joseph Haydn wrote almost as much music as his older sibling, which has unfortunately fallen into obscurity. Intent on reviving his legacy, Alina Ibragimova and the OAE will perform his most enduring concerto.
Paired with music by Michael Haydn’s contemporary, Mozart, who of course has a very different legacy, the programme concludes with a rare opportunity to hear his Posthorn Serenade, featuring a star turn for the instrument used in the 18th century to signal the arrival of the mail coach.
