    Haydn  Symphony No. 104, Hob. I: 104 « London »
    Brahms  Symphony No. Op. 73 

    Symphony No. 104 reminds us that Haydn was a role model for Brahms, whose Symphony No. 2 blends very classical clarity with subtle romantic colours. Haydn composed his final symphony in London in 1795 for concerts presented by the impresario Johann Peter Salomon. With his elegant melodies, flair for the dramatic, nods to popular music, and formal and harmonic subtleties, Haydn proves once again that he writes for connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike. The same could be said for Brahms, who penned his Symphony No. 2 during the summer of 1877, on the shores of a lake in Carinthia. The work may well owe its pastoral colour to this entrancing scenery. Its author presented it as a “waltz suite” and “happy little symphony, wholly innocent”, which nevertheless has moments tinged with delicate melancholy.
