About us

University of York Baroque Ensemble

Mozart: Divertimento in D K 251
WF Bach: Sinfonia in D minor F65
Haydn: Symphony no.49 in F minor ('La Passione')

Through the medium of the symphony, 18th-century composers embraced large-scale forms and rich instrumentation, giving rise to a new wave of invention, expression and effects. This programme celebrates Haydn, heralded as the 'Father of the Symphony' and lauded by Mozart who stated that 'he alone has the secret of making me smile, and touching me to the bottom of my soul'.

The world of music was not immune from the enormous social and political upheavals of the 18th century: 'The Century of Lights'. This year's Baroque Day highlights the changes in style and taste that marked the transition from the late Baroque to Classical period and the rise of the string quartet and the symphony.
