Canterbury Orchestra presents works by the three most influential composers of the Classical Period, beginning with early compositions by Haydn and Mozart which represent mainstream popular music of the day and are both charming and witty.  Mozart’s Divertimento in the style of an Italian Sinfonia features the string section of the Orchestra whilst Haydn’s Notturno is arranged for wind instruments.  Mozart’s Symphony no.31 was written during a stay in Paris and the instrumentation reflects his access to larger orchestras — it was his first symphony to include clarinets.  Beethoven produced his 7th Symphony whilst convalescing in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice & is known for its use of rhythmic figures and tonal subtlety.
