The ACO's resident librarian and music expert Bernard Rofe has collated a preview of the music and composers that will appear in Mozart, Haydn & More.
HAYDN Symphony No.47 in G major ‘Palindrome’
Haydn’s Symphony No.47 takes its nickname from its third movement, titled “Menuetto al Roverso e Trio al Roverso”. In this Minuet and Trio, the second half of each melody is the same as the first, only backwards. The Symphony was a particular favourite of Mozart’s, a notorious jokester himself, who would have appreciated Haydn’s ingenuity in the aforementioned movement. This Symphony is the basis for the palindromic design of this program, whose second half is a mirror of its first.
