Bach in Baltimore

Sunday, April 21, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. in the church

Beethoven, Mozart, & Haydn

Beethoven’s iconic fifth symphony hardly needs any introduction. Composed in a period of violent turmoil as Napoleon’s armies were marching across Europe, as well as personal turmoil – as Beethoven was rapidly going deaf – it remains a heroic sounding work. After the high drama of Beethoven, enjoy Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusic (A Little Night Music), and Haydn’s Symphony No. 8 in G major. This trio of works from Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn is a perfect sample of the dynamism of the classical era.

Standard Cost: $34-$42
