Performing on a copy of a Michael Mietcke double harpsichord, Lewis is joined by the soprano Jennifer Ellis Kampani.

The Bach Sinfonia
The Genius of Haydn

A festive program exploring a wide range of works by Haydn. Enjoy the enticing call of horns in the lesser-known but delightful opera overture to "Fidelity's Reward", a tribute to Diana, goddess of the hunt. Experience Haydn's middle period sturm und drang in the restless and passionate Symphony No. 52. Hear the famed Trumpet Concerto, featuring soloist Stanley Curtis performing on a unique and rarely heard keyed trumpet, a replica of the instrument for which the piece was intended. The program concludes with the grand, late Symphony No. 92 written for the city of Paris, but perhaps better known as the work Haydn conducted at the 1791 ceremony at which he was awarded an honorary doctorate by Oxford University.
