Event Haydn Symphonies Project part 6
Venue St. Oswin's Church Hall, Church Rd, Wylam NE41 8AT
Description The 6th session in our journey through Haydn's symphonies will be on Sunday 12 November 2017 at St Oswins Church Hall, Wylam from 2.00pm to 6.00pm.

We will be looking at symphonies 34,23,22,21,24,and 29 all written between 1763 and 1765. Symphony No.21 (The Philosopher) is one of Haydn's "named" symphonies and is unique as it has 2 coranglais instead of oboes. A great opportunity for those of you who play the coranglais!

All of the other symphonies we will be looking at were written for strings with oboes and horns (although bassoons are likely to have also played cello parts and will be very welcome at this session).

As a compromise between trying to retain an authentic orchestra, and making the sessions available to more players to participate the following additional players are also welcome to participate in this session:-
Flutes to double oboe parts
Clarinets - to play oboe parts (in C) but no transposed parts will be provided.
After this session we will have looked at 34 of the symphonies. Only 72 to go and the orchestra does get bigger soon!

Please book asap so that I know how many parts we will need. I look forward to seeing you at Wylam!
