Haydn’s Morning Symphony with Jonathan Cohen

May 18-20, 2018


On this program, SPCO Artistic Partner and masterful Baroque interpreter Jonathan Cohen tracks the evolution from the Baroque style to the Classical. Baroque Czech composer Jan Dismas Zelenka pushed boundaries with his distinct harmonic treatments while English composer Charles Avison strove for a new balance between harmony and melody. C.P.E. Bach drew deeply from the dense intricacies of the Baroque style while incorporating elements of the simplicity and emotional clarity that would define the Classical style as exemplified in Haydn’s Morning Symphony.
