Haydn's Seasons

Part of Isle of Noises

Joseph Haydn was born in an era when nature touched every part of life, and he died in an age of revolution.

It’s all there in his final masterpiece The Seasons: an irresistibly tuneful panorama of 18th-century life and love in all its bustling, earthy exuberance.

With its winter storms and whistling ploughmen, hymns of praise and booze-fuelled revels, this sequel to The Creation was inspired by Haydn’s time in London, and written specially to appeal to British audiences.

And it doesn’t come around all that often – so this performance with the London Philharmonic Choir under Vladimir Jurowski should be a real occasion.
