Handel, Haydn & Mendelssohn


Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center

This is an in-person event

PAUL MCCREESH conducts
BRADLEY HUNTER WELCH organ

HAYDN Symphony No. 103 in E-flat major “Drum Roll”
HANDEL Organ Concerto “The Cuckoo and the Nightingale”
MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 4 in A major “Italian”

An All-German composer line-up featuring works with inventive nicknames, begins with Haydn’s penultimate symphony, No. 103, which demands full attention from the opening timpani drumroll and a sublime slow movement that elicited an immediate encore at its premiere in London.

Marvel at the sound of the 4,535-pipe Lay Family Concert Organ in Handel’s witty “Cuckoo and the Nightingale” Concerto, in which the organ’s wind stops seem to twitter like a cuckoo and warble like a nightingale.

Inspired by the art, landscape and vitality of Italy and the people Mendelssohn met during his trip, his last Fourth Symphony is brimming with rhythmic energy and counterpoint, and is a major workout for the orchestra.
