It takes a true music nerd to find delight in Mendelssohn’s energetic fairy-tale music or enjoy the silly “surprise” of one of Haydn’s greatest symphonies. But here we are having fun. How about one more surprise? The theme that Brahms thought was by Haydn … is not.

Felix MENDELSSOHN: Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Franz Josef HAYDN: Symphony No. 94 (“Surprise”)
Johannes BRAHMS: Variations on a Theme of Josef Haydn

Gabriel Lefkowitz, conductor
