The symphonies of Haydn and Mozart represent a landmark in the history of Western music. Living at a time when composers were fast making the transition from being servants in grand households to being individuals with a personal and committed voice, Haydn and Mozart laid a firm foundation for a rich form of musical expression in that strange phenomenon called the "symphony." They wrote over 150 symphonies between them and their influence has had a lasting effect on later symphonic forms and styles as well as on the development of the symphony orchestra.
Andre Previn conducts the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in some of the most popular and important works of the concert repertoire. In rehearsal, Previn discusses each composer and his music, using pictures, anecdotes, and orchestral excerpts to underscore his comments. Each program concludes with a complete and uninterrupted performance of the symphony. British Academy Award Winner. 90 minutes. Color.
