Join the Qatar Philharmonic for a captivating evening featuring the works of Haydn, Brahms, and Bartók. The concert will begin with Haydn’s Surprise Symphony, a byname of Symphony No. 94 in G Major, named for the “surprise”- an astoundingly loud chord- that punctuates the gentle flow of the second movement. The performance will continue with Brahms’ Variations on a Theme of Haydn, a composition based on the theme and variations of the Saint Anthony Chorale by Haydn. The night will end with Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, a colourful showpiece that is arguably the most popular of Bartók’s orchestral works. The Philharmonic will be led by spirited German conductor Elias Grandy.
