Works by Haydn and Mozart

Presented by:

 

 

Opera in the 18th century had firmly established the primacy of the voice, a fact that will be eloquently recalled by Andréanne Brisson Paquin’s shimmering and expressive voice. But another protagonist made its mark in the Classical Period: the clarinet, an instrument of rich colors and subtle dynamics. And Lorenzo Coppola is one of its greatest devotees in all its historical guises. Soprano and clarinets will share the stage, around one of Haydn’s most rousing symphonies.
