This concert presents two symphonies by Haydn, the “Father of the symphony”:  Symphony No. 82 “The Bear” (part of the Paris symphonies) and Symphony No. 104 “London” (part of the London Symphonies). During the 19th century, London and Paris were the capitals of the strongest countries in Europe and the epitomes of prosperity and abundance. Dicken’s A Tale of Two Cities took place in the two locations and the novel’s beginning quote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” is widely recognized. A Tale of Two Cities was set around the French Revolution in 1789, which is about the same time Haydn composed these two symphonies: No. 82 was completed in 1786 and No. 104 was composed in 1795.

Haydn’s symphonies were undoubtedly a part of the best of the times. Symphony No. 82 begins in high spirits and a smooth melody, and the last movement incorporates a vitality similar to country dance music with a counterpoint arrangement, making it as exciting as Mozart’s later symphonies. Symphony No. 104 was Haydn’s last symphony. It is also one of his most famous and most performed symphonies which showcases a relaxed and mature flair. After listening to the outstanding works of Haydn, how could you say he is not as talented as Mozart or as powerful as Beethoven?

Performed by solo cellist Bryan Cheng in this concert, Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major was completed in the 1760s and was one of the most popular concertos during the Classical period. Compared with the other two symphonies performed in this concert, this concerto is relatively exquisite and refreshing.
