The Handel and Haydn Society celebrates Haydn with a dazzling pairing of two of the composer's masterpieces. In one of his final performances as Artistic Director of the Society, Harry Christophers leads the ensemble and a stellar cast of soloists in Haydn's monumental 'Theresienmesse' (Mass in B-flat major - Hob. XXII:12) and his Symphony No. 103 in E-flat major (Hob. I:103) the 'Drumroll' - one of Haydn's twelve 'London' symphonies composed between 1791 and 1795 when London was the indisputable musical capital of Europe. "This chorus is consistently excellent, but something had lit a special fire under them... Of the "Theresienmesse" the chorus and orchestra made a brilliant tapestry. " (Boston Globe)
