Location: The Guildhall, Royal Parade, Plymouth. PL1 1HA

The Seasons was Haydn’s follow-up to his successful The Creation. In four parts, each musically depicting a season, it offers plentiful opportunities for all the participants to shine. Haydn’s genius transforms many genre scenes: a summer storm, hunting episodes, daybreak, the gloomy winter fog, peasant dances, and imitations of nature, like frog croaks that will bring a smile to your face.More Info Here
