‘Papa Haydn’ was the early classical-era musical master who influenced all composers who knew him or heard his work. Mozart seemlessley picked up the torch passed to him from Haydn, and elevated the art form to unprecedented heights.
Mozart penned his Symphony No. 1 at the tender age of 8 years old, and the notable four-note motif in the second movement of that early work (Do, Re, Fa, Mi) is also heard in his much later Jupiter Symphony, No. 41.
Brahms was a Romantic-era composer who was also the last great 'classicist' and was greatly influenced by the writings of both Mozart and Haydn. This influence is notably apparent in his homage to Haydn in his Variations.
The concert closes with Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony; his last and greatest symphony which is a thrilling, uplifting statement of sheer joy and musical perfection.
