Haydn L'infedelta delusa Overture
WA Mozart Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat Major, K. 297b
Salieri Variations on La folia di Spagna
Hummel Acht Variationen und Coda über “O du lieber Augustin”

Let the NZSO entertain you with the sounds of eighteenth-century Continental Europe.

Mozart was wowing audiences with his compositions, seemingly turning any musical form into gold. His Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat Major is a perfect example of Classical-era symmetry, grace and style, Featuring wind and brass soloists from the NZSO.

Meanwhile, Antonio Salieri, famously portrayed in the movie Amadeus as Mozart’s nemesis, was making his own name with piquant works like his Variations on the common La Folia di Spagna (Spanish Follies) tune, while Haydn, another Mozart contemporary, was busy in Esterhazy, setting the foundations for the orchestra as we now know it.

Johann Nepomuk Hummel was Mozart and Salieri’s student and eventually took over for Haydn as Kapellmeister (musical director) at Esterhazy. Hummel’s Acht Variationen represent his place as a torchbearer and bridge between the past generation and the next.
