In this case, Vienna is a movable feast! Though closely associated with the Austrian capital, Haydn wrote his "Drum Roll" Symphony during one of his famous visits to London. The piece begins with a dramatic timpani roll; its final movement kicks off with a horn call. The sound of the hunt echoes in Bruckner's popular Fourth Symphony ("Romantic"), which premiered in Vienna in 1881 and was the only one of his nine symphonies the composer nicknamed. "Pastoral" might also be an apt description as the mountain scenes and peasant surroundings of the composer's Austrian countryside come to life. This is the most "terrestrial-based" of Bruckner's mostly ethereal symphonies. It's the everyday music of the people, presented in grand and sweeping symphonic style, and elevated by Yannick's deep affinity for the composer.
