Haydn - The Seasons

Friday, November 17, 2017

“This is one of his greatest masterpieces,” says Yannick about Haydn's The Seasons. “He put everything he had into that score.” From the first blush of spring to impending winter, Haydn's exuberant oratorio, written close to the end of his life, encompasses a full year of living: sunrises and sunsets, a thundering storm, the wonder of nature and all the Earth's creatures, sonorous calls to the hunt, and boisterous drinking songs. Yannick's mission to bring great choral repertoire to Verizon Hall continues with gusto with what he calls Haydn's “most touching work: grand scale and very full of life, joy, and hope.”
