  1. Symphony No 102 in B flat - (Franz) Joseph Haydn
  2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 1 in G minor Op 25 - Felix Mendelssohn
  3. Introduction and Concert Allegro, for piano and orchestra Op 134 - Robert Schumann
  4. Symphony No 5 in B flat D 485 - Franz Schubert

Symphony No 102, written for Haydn’s second visit to London, is one of the finest of all his symphonies. Its four movements include a deeply felt adagio and a high-spirited finale based on a Croatian folk tune. Mendelssohn’s piano concerto shows many of his strengths, as a dramatic first movement gives way to a lyrical and tender slow section. The finale is a tour de force of elegant, fleet-fingered virtuosity. Schumann’s dramatic piece for piano and orchestra has all the virtues of his more famous Piano Concerto. Schubert’s symphony is one of the most melodic and genial pieces that he ever wrote. The four movements are perfectly proportioned and full of delightful music.
