Haydn was “composer in residence” in London twice: in the 1791/92 season and in the 1794/95 season. At that time, the city was in the grip of music fever, to which Haydn had contributed significantly. Today, one of his London symphonies often merely stands at the beginning of a concert in which a musical heavyweight by another composer follows.
The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, on the other hand, devotes itself entirely to the “Shakespeare of Music”, as Haydn was called by the press of his time. The program includes three of his London symphonies, for which Haydn delved deep into his bag of tricks.
