Haydn Symphonies: Le Matin, Le Midi, Le Soir
Florilegium have been invited as part of their 30th anniversary celebrations to perform at the Stour Festival on 25 June 2021. The concert “Morning, Noon and Night” is an all-Haydn programme featuring his first symphonies for his new employer, Prince Paul Anton Esterházy. As symphonies for a small chamber orchestra all three exploit the solo skills of each of Florilegium’s principals, from flute to double bass – not to mention heroic horns – each vividly characterised in an almost operatic way.
This performance will be recorded by Polyphonic Films and later streamed to help fund a CD recording with Channel Classics.
