  • Metropolitan United Church 468 Wellington Street London, ON, N6A 3P8 Canada (map)

London Symphonia with conductor Matthias Maute

Joseph Haydn was awe-struck by the genius and unbridled energy of his young protégé. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart deeply respected the boundless creativity of his elder mentor. Together, Haydn and Mozart forged a deep bond that influenced the course of music history. They even liked to play together!

Our program includes movements from their most famous symphonies and string quartets, along with a performance of Mozart’s beloved Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter.”
