Description

Haydn Symphony no. 60 in C major “Il Distratto” (The Distracted Gentleman)

Milhaud Le boeuf sur le toit (The Ox on the Roof) for Violin and Orchestra

Zoë Beyers - violin

Piazzolla Three Tangos

Mozart Symphony no.39 in E-Flat Major


The ESO begin their third season of popular Shirehall Sunday concerts with what might be Haydn’s funniest work, The Distracted Gentleman. The absurd and surreal tone of the concert continues with Milhaud’s jovial and bizarre ballet, brimming with the sounds of Brazil, and the South American flavour of the concert also includes three tangos by Piazzolla, both featuring Zoë Beyers, the ESO’s newly-appointed leader and one of the most exciting violinists in the UK. The concert concludes with Mozart’s humorous and rustic 39th Symphony.


“…possibly the funniest and most modern symphony ever written. Haydn uses most of the 20th-century ‘isms’ in this piece—surrealism, absurdism, modernism, poly-stylism, and hops effortlessly between tightly integrated symphonic argument and rapid-fire cinematic jump-cutting.” Conductor Kenneth Woods
