JOSEPH HAYDN

Symphony No. 70 in D major

PETER EÖTVÖS

Aurora, for double bass solo, string orchestra and accordion (co-commissioned by Karajan-Akademie der Berliner Philharmoniker, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Tongyeong International Music Festival) (Swiss première)

FRANZ SCHUBERT 

Symphony No. 9 in C major D. 944, known as 'La Grande'


the music

Haydn displays a breathtaking mastery of scholarly writing with the double canons and triple fugues – coupled with a good dose of humour – which run through Symphony No. 70. Commissioned by Peter Eötvös for several orchestras, including the OCL, Aurora describes in its own way the incredible light of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) as seen by the composer flying over Alaska. After his masterful recording of Schubert's complete symphonies, Heinz Holliger brings his exciting new conception of the imposing Symphony No. 9to the concert.
