The SSO returns to its home, the newly refurbished Victoria Concert Hall, for this concert. Haydn is believed to have composed his one and only Sinfonia Concertante - a charming yet virtuosic work for violin, cello, oboe and bassoon - in a mere few weeks between February and March 1792, during his second London season. In stark contrast, Brahms took far longer with his First Symphony - more than 20 years - so awed was he at treading the same ground as his illustrious predecessor Beethoven. Despite a troubled premiere, it quickly gained popularity and renown, earning the famous comment from critic Eduard Hanslick, "Brahms' artistic kinship with Beethoven must be plain to every observer."
