The symphony is the greatest instrumental form of all time. It has always been a matter of prestige for composers to write and perform a symphony and it has always been a matter of honour for the orchestra to perform the symphony brilliantly. The Prague Chamber Orchestra has very carefully compiled the programme of tonight’s concert, at which they will present a representative cross-section of the history of Classical Symphony. We can hear the very first symphony of the founder of this form, Joseph Haydn, one of the top symphonies of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and finally the symphony of Ludwig van Beethoven, which opens the door to Romanticism.
