Haydn’s Surprise Symphony with Jonathan Cohen

Haydn’s Surprise Symphony with Jonathan Cohen

Friday, May 17, 2019
7:00 pm


Event Details:
In a program spanning just 38 years of music, Artistic Partner Jonathan Cohen shows off the expressive range and influence of an impressive group of composers. Works by Mozart flank a C.P.E. Bach cello concerto performed by SPCO Principal Cellist Julie Albers. Although we might think that C.P.E. lived in his father Johann Sebastian’s shadow, during the late 18th century, Carl Philipp Emanuel’s reputation surpassed that of his father. The program also includes the Surprise Symphony by Haydn, one of C.P.E. Bach’s greatest admirers.

Please note: All tickets will be held at will call. Please arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the concert to pick up your tickets.
