Glasgow Chamber Orchestra: Symphonies Classical
Glasgow Chamber Orchestra rounds off its 2017/2018 concerts with three examples of symphonies in the classical style conducted by Peter Cynfryn Jones. Two come from the period proper (the late 18th Century) in the form of Haydn's Symphony No 101 (The Clock), composed during his tenure in London, and Mozart's Symphony No.38 (Prague). A young Prokofiev, writing in the early 20th Century, wrote his 1st Symphony in the uplifting Classical style but included a modern sense of harmonic development, looking back and forward.
