Genre: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra

Baroque and classical Vienna

Ton Koopman conducts music by J.S. Bach and Haydn.

Bach composed four orchestral suites, all equally imaginative in their own way. They consist of several alternatingly fast and slow dances, which was the fashion in the Baroque era. Here, the majestic fourth and final one will be particularly charged by the leadership of internationally acclaimed Baroque expert Ton Koopman on the conductor’s podium.

Joseph Haydn’s last twelve symphonies were colloquially known as the London Symphonies. Haydn was finally finished with his employment with Furst Esterházy and he could do as he wanted. When he received a request for twelve symphonies from Johann Peter Salomon, the German violinist and impresario with his own orchestra in London, he couldn’t say no, for the pay was exceptional. Haydn blossomed and the symphonies comprise a highlight of the classical music of Vienna.
