Purcell: Incidental Music for Abdelazar
J.S.Bach: Concerto for Two Violins, BWV 1041-3
Haydn: Symphony No. 86
Beethoven: Triple Concerto for Violin, Cello & Piano, op. 56
Tonight’s ‘chronological’ concert features Purcell’s, music for ‘Abdelazer’, with one of its melodies famous as the one Benjamin Britten ‘borrowed’ for his ‘Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra’. The back story is interesting – spies, prison, a pioneering female writer…..read on.
Bach wrote his well-loved Double Violin Concerto somewhere between 1717 and 1723 while Haydn’s 86th Symphony was one of a set of 6 written for performances in Paris in the 1780’s. Full of a ‘joie de vivre’, it shows that even after 86 symphonies Haydn’s creativity was not diminishing.
Beethoven’s Triple Concerto (1803) has been described as relaxed, expansive and agreeable, words not often connected with most of Beethoven’s output. So, sit back, relax and enjoy some serene, likable and rather different Beethoven.
