C.P.E. Bach - Symphony No. 3 in C Major (H. 649/Wq. 174)
Albinoni - Oboe Concerto in D minor Op. 9 No. 2
Haydn - Symphony No. 89 in F Major

Travel back in time to the opulence of the 1700s with accomplished Australian violinist Sophie Rowell as your guide. CSO has curated a trio of works composed during a sixty-year period, by three doyens of the Baroque and Classical periods.

Music was a real family affair over many generations for the Bach family. Carl Philipp Emmanuel was taught by his father J.S.Bach, and built an independent career during a time when the orchestra was coming into its own. This Symphony in C Major is packed with zesty energy and elegance.

Albinoni was one of the first Italian composers to write for the oboe – a newly emerging instrument at the time. This concerto is known for its ravishing slow movement, and our beloved CSO Principal Oboe Jenny Clapp is not to be missed in the role of soloist.

Affectionately referred to as 'the father of the Symphony,' Haydn wrote over 100 of them – many noted for their remarkable originality of form for the time. Haydn’s cheerful 89th Symphony comes from his years working in the court of Prince Nikolaus Esterházy, and he cleverly mined material from several of his own earlier works, reassigning it for this sparkling combination of strings and winds.
