Nathan Truesdale Conductors David Williams Haydn Symphony No. 104 in D major, London Copland Appalachian Spring Glazunov Symphony No. 5 in B flat (flat symbol) major This autumn’s performance by the University Sinfonia begins with the playful orchestration and cheerful melodies of Haydn’s last Symphony. Combined with an energetic rhythmic movement, it’s the perfect prelude to Copland’s celebration of American Midwestern life, his Pulitzer Prize-winning score being one of the most recognisable American works in the repertoire since its composition. In contrast, Glazunov’s Symphony No. 5 is an adventure on a grand scale, in which melody, colour and excitement propel us towards a particularly breath-taking conclusion, a celebration of brilliant sound and colour.
