In the second half of the 18th century the city of Vienna was not only at the epi-centre of the cultural and artistic world, but also a magnet to some of the most creative minds of the age.

Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven each found their own inspiration and success in this dynamic city while also developing friendship and admiration for each other.

The overture to Haydn’s opera L'isola disabitata (The Desert Island) became an instant hit with audiences and critics alike. Unusually for the time it was regularly performed as a stand-alone work in concert programmes, such was the reception it received immediately following its premiere.

Moving from Salzburg to Vienna at the age of 25, Mozart was a great admirer of Haydn and maintained a life-long friendship with him. The CSO is delighted to welcome back Natalia Lomeiko, past winner of the Michael Hill International Violin Competition to perform Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3.

One of the most recognised pieces of orchestral music, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony belongs to the composer’s heroic period. A testament to triumph over tragedy, the opening four note theme was described by the composer as “fate knocking at the door”.
