Sir Simon Rattle pays homage to a composer he holds close to his heart with An Imaginary Orchestral Journey through the music of Joseph Haydn. Rattle trawls through the great composer’s impressive catalog, piecing together excerpts from symphonies, oratorios and operas spanning a 40-year period in what Rattle describes as ‘a kind of greatest hits’ format. The London Symphony Orchestra’s music director explains, “The idea is to make a musical journey through all that is quirky and extraordinary, humorous and profound in Haydn.”
