WINTER CONCERT: A DATE FOR YOUR DIARIES
Our winter concert of late eighteenth century music will take place on Saturday 29 November at 3 pm in All Saints Parish Church, Kingston KT1 1JP.
The programme will include Haydn’s last symphony, No 104, ‘The London’, composed in 1795 while he was living in London, This explains the name – although in fact altogether he wrote eleven other ‘London’ symphonies.
We will be joined again by the Harmonie Choir for a performance of Part One of Handel’s Messiah, in Mozart’s arrangement. Handel’s original orchestration was for strings and continuo with occasional trumpets and drums. Mozart brought it up to date, to suit late eighteenth century taste, adding woodwind and more brass and timpani.
