Lorenza Borrani director
Sainsbury Royal Academy Soloists
Haydn String Quartet to be announced
Haydn Symphony No 83 in G minor, 'La poule'
Lorenza Borrani, eminent soloist and leader of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and the Sainsbury Royal Academy Soloists present the results of their workshop on Haydn's Symphony No 83, the second in the series of six 'Paris' symphonies popularly known as 'The Hen'. This nickname derives from the 'clucking' effect heard in the opening movement, which reminded listeners of the jerky head motions of a walking hen. The performance will also feature one of Haydn's string quartets, prepared in an earlier workshop led by Borrani.
