Haydn's Oxford Symphony... in Oxford
Last week, I had the joy of performing Haydn Symphony No. 92, 'Oxford', in the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford with the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra. While Haydn had performed the symphony before, in Paris, it was destined for performance in this very hall when the composer was invited to come for an honorary doctorate in 1789.
What a privilege to be immersed in the same ambiance nearly 250 years later!
