HAYDN:  Symphony No. 22
SCHREKER:  Chamber Symphony
JOHNSEN: Concerto for Two Bassoons in F Major
BEETHOVEN:  Symphony No. 2

Haydn’s “The Philosopher” takes time to ask questions and propose answers during the opening of this program, with thoughtful dialogue between the English and French Horns – that is, until two thrilling Prestos unleash the full speed of the symphony. Schreker’s Chamber Symphony is a masterwork of color, blending tone to create a gorgeous wash of romantic tone and heart-breaking harmony. We finish by celebrating Beethoven’s 250th Birthday with his cracking Symphony No. 2, which rages as hard as it laughs. The finale will keep you guessing from start to finish – just when you think he’s pumped the brakes, the race is on!
