Since its 1795 première, Joseph Haydn’s 103rd Symphony, nicknamed The Drum Roll after the long ominous timpani roll with which it begins, remains a favorite of his impressive output of 104 symphonies. Brilliantly constructed, the four-movement work culminates in an unflagging, energetic finale based on a single theme and filled with drama and excitement. The program also includes Johann Sebastian Bach’s masterful Orchestral Suite No. 4 and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 2.
