BBC Philharmonic | 7 May

The Harmoniemesse was the last important work written by Joseph Haydn, completed in the year that the great composer turned 70. Yet this is no valediction, no quiet farewell – it’s a work of magnificent ambition and grandeur, ending not with a solemn wave goodbye but an infectious mood of positivity and joy. Chief Conductor Omer Meir Wellber directs a suitably expansive team of musicians and singers in a roof-raising performance tonight, preceded by Strauss’s gracious and elegant homage to baroque master François Couperin.
