Haydn and Schubert in the IV Concert of the II Season 2020

The IV Concert of the II Season 2020 will be the next digital delivery. Concert recorded live and without public on Thursday, October 8 at the Pumapungo Theater, will be broadcast this Saturday, October 17 at 8 PM in the Digital Concert Hall of the Cuenca Symphony Orchestra on YouTube https://www.youtube .com / user / sinfonicacuenca and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/sinfonicacuenca. It should be noted that the concert was recorded strictly following the "Work Protocol for the Production of Audiovisual and Cinematographic Works during the health crisis caused by COVID-19 in Ecuador" processed by the Ministry of Culture and approved by the National COE.
 
The repertoire includes: Symphony No. 13 in D Major by Joseph Haydn and Symphony No. 5 in B Flat Major by Franz Schubert.
 
Symphony No. 13 in D Major. Joseph Haydn. It dates from 1763. Esterházy's orchestra, where Haydn was the Kapellmeister, allowed him to develop a symphony model not only in terms of form, with 4 movements, but also of content, as elements such as grandeur, brilliance and a majestic tone. A good example for this is Symphony No. 13. The first Allegro molto has this grandiose character with full use of woods and horns and a brilliantly virtuous gesture.
In the Adagio cantabile he uses the cello as a soloist, accompanied alone by a subtle foundation of the strings.
 
The Menuet restores the tutti forces of the entire orchestra, but in the Trio the strings again accompany a soloist, this time the flute. For the Finale: Allegro molto, Haydn combines a fugato style with a sonata form. The theme of the four-note Cantus Firmus of Gregorian origin is the same that Mozart will use in his 33rd and 41st symphonies, the Jupiter.
 
Symphony No. 5 in B Flat Major. Franz Schubert. Composed in 1816, when Schubert was just 19-years old. This symphony, today one of Schubert's most popular, remained unpublished for 70 years, like many of his best works.
The fifth symphony shows the generational change between Schubert and his predecessors: Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Although the form and instrumentation is oriented in its models, there is a romantic feeling in its themes and its transformations, especially in the harmonic handling, which dominates the dramatic contrasts of the classical model. The first Allegro movement features two sing-song themes, rather than two contrasting themes. The Andante con Moto in mixed form between Lied and Rondo takes up the festive sound of Mozart's Andantes in the same key B-flat major, but with the typical surprise modulations of the romantic Schubert.
 
The Menuet is reminiscent of the dramatic Mozart in G Minor, while the Trio contrasts with a tender song in G major - shadow and light. The final Allegro Vivace is based on a Haydn-style contradance theme, which undergoes - or enjoys - multiple harmonic transformations in the development section, showing the young Romantic composer who widely opened the doors to the 19th century, the century of Romanticism. .
