Haydn Symphonies 22 and 92. With the help of the BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Nicholas Kraemer , Stephen Johnson considers how Haydn's musical imagination was fired by events in his life. His Symphony No 22 in E flat, known as the Philosopher, could have been inspired by the arrival of a pair cor anglais at his workplace in Esterhaza. Plus a look at one of Haydn's later symphonies - No 92 in G (Oxford) - once thought to have been composed to celebrate his honorary degree.
Haydn's life was one of never-ending deadlines and he received more commissions than he could manage. But there was one occasion when he wrote genuinely for pleasure. Aled Jones explores a set of part-songs inspired by the composer's visit to one of England's singing societies, the so-called glee clubs.
