Joseph HAYDN: Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze

Concerts on 9 April 2020 in Genoa

Concert on 10 April 2020

"Some fifteen years ago I was requested by a canon of Cádiz to compose instrumental music on the Seven Last Words of Our Savior on the Cross. It was customary at the Cathedral of Cádiz to produce an oratorio every year, the effect of the performance being not a little enhanced by the following circumstances. The walls, windows and pillars of the church were hung with black cloth, and only one large lamp hanging from the centre of the roof broke the solemn darkness. After a short service the bishop ascended the pulpit, pronounced the first of the seven words and delivered a discourse thereon. This ended, he left the pulpit and fell to his knees before the altar. The interval was filled by music. The bishop then in like manner pronounced the second word, then the third, and so on, the orchestra following on the conclusion of each discourse. My composition was subject to these conditions." (F.J. Haydn, 1804).

Alongside the music, Alex Jennings reads two of George Herbert’s greatest poems, including his great meditation that imagines the thoughts of Christ on the cross, asking ‘Was ever grief like mine?’

Conductor: Claudio Astronio

Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART: Symphony n. 35 in D major “Haffner” KV 504

Joseph Martin KRAUS: Symphony in c minor VB 142

Concert on 8 June 2018 in Malborghetto

Concert on 10 June 2018 in Trieste

Everybody knows very well Mozart's Haffner Symphony! But perhaps not everybody knows that Mozart and Kraus met in Vienna in 1781, during the Grand Tour that Kraus undertook throughout Europe. In these years, he wrote the dramatic c minor Symphony, whose score came to Mozart's hands for a while. A few months later, Mozart wrote the Haffner Symphony, whose first movement's second theme was entirely and literally borrowed from the first movement of Kraus c minor Symphony. Geniuses meet and recognize their mutual value. Years later, Haydn wrote about Kraus c minor Symphony: "The symphony he wrote here in Vienna especially for me will be regarded as a masterpiece for centuries to come; believe me, there are few people who can compose something like that".

Featuring young singers, musicians and dancers, they meet every year for the pleasure of music. Les Goûts Réunis continue their musical wanderings with The Creation by Josef Haydn.

Composed between 1796 and 1798, The Creation  is probably the masterpiece of Josef Haydn. Inspired as much by Genesis as by Enlightenment philosophy, this oratorio shines with its optimism. His particularly descriptive score is indeed a wonderful declaration of love and hope to man.

“I’m just a simple Czech musician” said Antonín Dvořák – and in his Wind Serenade Op.44, he transformed the village band music of the Bohemian countryside into one of the sweetest, funniest and most delightfully unexpected mini-masterpieces of the 19th century. The Royal Welsh College Chamber Winds have paired it with three playful dances by the young Janáček to complete a lunchtime concert with a Slavonic swing.
