Canterbury Orchestra’s summer concert explores elements of the transition from Classicism to Romanticism in the then Austro-German empire centred around the vibrant musical hub of Vienna.  Haydn’s “Drumroll” symphony, written in London before his return to Vienna, provides an example of his late classical symphonies; Hummel, a protege of Haydn, gives us the first modern trumpet concerto and from Leipzig we hear one of Schumann’s early flirtations with the symphony.
