Roberto Abbado's second program of the season combines Haydn with another twentieth-century maverick in Igor Stravinsky. Stravinsky's ballet score Apollon Musagète, one of the composer's most elegant works, evokes the splendor of Haydn's devilishly inventive symphonies: his Symphony No. 88, composed in 1787, shows Haydn at the height of his powers. The program also features the world premiere of a new piano concerto by the Italian composer Nicola Campogrande, commissioned by the SPCO.
Performances are 10:30am and 8pm.
