The Harvard-Radcliffe Chorus will be performing
Franz Joseph Haydn’s
We will be accompanied by;
Sarah Yanovitch, soprano,
Jonas Budris, tenor,
Paul Max Tipton, bass-baritone,
professional musicians on period instruments.
Edward Elwyn Jones, Art Director, conducting
The work is based on a translation of the poem "The Seasons" written by the Scottish writer James Thomson. The piece is an illustration of Haydn's perception of man and nature in ‘modern’ times and the work makes his views explicit. The oratorio is in four parts corresponding to the four seasons, and in a series of inspired arias, recitatives and choruses Haydn describes the course of nature during the year from the view of country people, their joys and fears of the weather, their farming activities along with their lives in a village community.
One of Haydn’s most sublime works, it deserves to be performed more often and we hope you will join us and enjoy it with us.
