Mozart enjoyed some of his greatest successes in Prague, and the first half of this concert showcases some of the music first performed there.

The equivalent city for Haydn was London. His dramatic scena is his most important work for solo voice, a striking piece that shows the title character lamenting her lost lover. The symphony is one of his very best, composed in London during his second visit to this country. The finale is a masterpiece of musical tension and strength, all based on an initial horn call.
