Take a whirlwind tour of the music of Austrian master Joseph Haydn in the hands of one of the world’s greatest musicians, Sir András Schiff, as part of Cheltenham Music Festival.

This concert rounds off our Visions, Illusions & Delusions season with a varied programme of music by Haydn, who as much as any other composer redefined what orchestral music came to be during the Enlightenment period.

‘I was interested in surprising the public with something new,’ Haydn said about his Symphony No. 94, now nicknamed the Surprise Symphony because of its breathless invention and numerous musical jokes.

It’s paired with Haydn’s Piano Concerto No.11, which is an opportunity to hear Schiff’s playing at its magical best.
