For this concert, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment asked tonight’s conductor and contemporary composers Sally Beamish and Hugh Wood to chose their favourite late-Haydn symphonies for performance.
The programme includes two of the composer's most popular pieces, and indeed two of the last he wrote, the London Symphony and the dazzling Trumpet Concerto, performed in this concert by OAE Principal Trumpet, David Blackadder.
Queen Elizabeth Hall at 5.45pm - Hugh Wood, Sally Beamish and Yannick Nezet-Seguin discuss why they have chosen these symphonies. Admission free.Performers
