The Program

PROKOFIEV: Classical Symphony

The symphony is composed in a style based on that of Joseph Haydn, but does not follow Haydn strictly, and it does not contain any quotations from Haydn. Thus it can be considered to be one of the first neoclassical compositions. The work was partly inspired by his conducting studies at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, where the instructor, Nikolai Tcherepnin, taught his students about conducting Haydn, among other composers. Prokofiev wrote the symphony on holiday in the country, using it as an exercise in composing away from the piano. It premiered on April 21, 1918 in Petrograd, conducted by Prokofiev himself, and has become one of his most popular works.

MOZART: Horn Concerto No. 3

BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 8

Location: Del Mar Fairgrounds Main Lot
