Haydn and Stravinsky
FLORIDA BLUE MASTERWORKS SERIES
HAYDN • Symphony No. 92, “Oxford”
STRAVINSKY • Symphony in C
Courtney Lewis, Music Director
Over his 104 symphonies, Franz Joseph Haydn single-handedly codified the genre’s conventions. By the time he wrote his 92nd, “The Oxford,” he was breaking his own “rules” in order to create explosions of humor and surprise. Igor Stravinsky’s Symphony in C exudes the tremendous upheaval he experienced during its composition: losing much of his family, recovering himself from tuberculosis, and emigrating from France to the United States at the onset of World War II.
Concerts begin at 7:30 PM. Performances are expected to last between 60 and 75 minutes and there will be no intermission. Masks must be worn at all times.
