Continuing their acclaimed live series on the Coro label, the Handel and Haydn Society presents one of Haydn’s early Sturm und Drang (Storm and Stress) symphonies – No. 26 in D minor. More commonly known as Lamentatione because of its association with Holy Week, Haydn incorporates an old plainsong chant juxtaposing it against the furious opening theme. The later Symphony No. 86 shows Haydn at his most inventive and expansive. Completing the program is Mozart’s lively and vibrant Violin Concerto in G major performed by the orchestra’s concertmaster, Aisslinn Nosky.
