Haydn: Spring and Summer

Haydn's The Seasons, first performed in 1810, has a libretto based on a poem by the Scottish poet James Thomson. Composed at the age of seventy, the wonderfully exuberant and humorous music is Haydn at his best. A ploughman whistling the famous theme from Haydn's 'Surprise' Symphony, a calling quail, chirping crickets and croaking frogs are all part of a beautiful outdoor musical tapestry describing two of the loveliest seasons.
