While Mozart is widely regarded as the lyric pinnacle of classical style, he was strongly influenced by those that came before him. He befriended J.C. Bach, youngest son of J.S. Bach, in London when young Wolfgang was on tour as a child prodigy. Haydn became a paternal mentor to the adult Mozart, often playing chamber music and attending concerts together.
From Bach, Mozart borrowed a brilliant texture and from Haydn a wide vocabulary of emotive expression. Feel the musical evolution in this program that features two beloved Philharmonia Baroque wind players – Marc Schachman and Danny Bond – as soloists for J.C. Bach’s Sinfonia Concertante for Oboe and Bassoon. Bach and Haydn’s symphonies draw a direct line to Mozart’s early twenty-ninth symphony, showing his music evolving from the strong influence of his mentors.
