Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

Period-performance pioneer Nikolaus Harnoncourt here makes his first ever Proms appearance in front of a modern symphony orchestra, conducting the incomparable Vienna Philharmonic in this season's last symphony by the 'father' of the form, 'Papa' Haydn (the bicentenary of whose death we mark this year). One of the first set of 12 'London' Symphonies, No.97 was composed and premiered on Haydn's first visit to England in 1791-2. Only ever given a rough run-through in Vienna during the composer's all-too-short lifetime, Schubert's 'Great' C major was eventually accorded its posthumous premiere by another of this year's bicentenarians, Felix Mendelssohn, in 1839. Approx finish time: 21:30. Broadcast Live on BBC Four and BBC Radio 3. There will be an interval.
