Conductor John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists are best known to US audiences through their award-winning recordings of Monteverdi, Bach, Beethoven, and dramatic works of the Baroque. Gardiner, a two-time Grammy winner, leads the period-instrument ensemble he founded more than 40 years ago in a program of Mozart and Haydn. Haydn’s Drumroll Symphony is a study in drama and suspense; Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante is a conversation between violin and viola soloists and the orchestra; and the composer’s Symphony No. 39 is a late-period opus that reveals supreme craft and ingenuity.
