March 2018 Concert
The ﬁnal 12 symphonies of Franz Joseph Haydn are collectively known as his “London symphonies” and the ﬁnal one of the 12, to some the greatest of all, is titled the “London” Symphony. William Walton’s Crown Imperial has been wittily referred to as the “Pomp and Circumstance March No. 6” as a worthy successor to Elgar’s ﬁve Pomp and Circumstance marches. Britten’s orchestral showpiece can also be titled “Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Henry Purcell,” and will be narrated by Henry Fogel, Dean of the Chicago College of Performing Arts of Roosevelt University.
- Symphony No. 104 in D Major “London”
