Haydn       Symphony No. 85
Mozart       Violin Concerto No.5
Elgar         Serenade for Strings
Schubert   Symphony No.5

Youthful masterpieces by Mozart, Elgar and Schubert, and a symphony by the ever-youthful Haydn. His Symphony No 85 sparkles with his characteristic wit and energy. Mozart’s Violin Concerto No 5 is graceful and elegant, but also kicks up its heels with some imitation Turkish music. Elgar was still largely unknown when he wrote his appealing Serenade, with its typically yearning slow movement. Schubert’s fresh, bubbly Fifth Symphony makes an ideal finale.
