Beethoven Symphony No. 2, 36′
Haydn Trumpet Concerto in E flat major, 14′
Dvořák Symphony No. 8, 36′
No composer makes a happier noise than Joseph Haydn – and when Alison Balsom is the soloist, you‟ve got a concert that‟s pretty much guaranteed to lift the spirits. After all, symphonies simply don‟t get any more cheerful than Beethoven‟s Second – except maybe Dvořák‟s Eighth! Village bands, singing birds and hummable tunes: instant sunshine, delivered with wit and charm by the young British conductor Ben Gernon. CBSO+ 1pm: CBSO violinist David Gregory and two other CBSO colleagues delve into Dvořák.
