Symphony No. 26 in E-flat Major, K. 184
Symphony in E-flat Major, Perger 26, Sherman 34, MH 473
The musical brothers Haydn were no strangers to sibling rivalry. Joseph traveled in fancy musical circles in Esterházy; Michael set up shop in Salzburg where he became friendly with the Mozart family. Decide for yourself who was better as Dame Jane Glover leads a celebration of each man’s unique artistry. Featured works include Michael Haydn’s Symphony in E-flat Major (1788) and Joseph Haydn’s Creation Mass, declared by one of his contemporaries, “the greatest work of a very great man.” A symphony by Mozart, who took inspiration from both brothers, completes the program.
