Qual freddo… Se tiranni, oh Dei, non siete” from Johann Christoph Bach’s “Endimione;” “Quel nocchier che in gran procella”  from Florian Gassmann’s “La Betulia Liberata,” and the second version of “Ah, perché cercar degg’io” from Mozart’s “Il sogno di Scipione.”

The performance will also include symphonic works by Mozart and Haydn, conducted by Page.

There will be a second performance on March 15, 2022, also at Cadogan Hall, featuring three symphonies by Haydn.
