The first movement of Mozart's "Haffner" Symphony is a tour-de-force of contrapuntal writing. Like Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, the piece begins with a short and simple call and response "kernel," and then uses that kernel to accompany itself in a way that is playful, subtle, and joyful. Watch here Claudio Abbado conduct the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, and then come watch CityMusic Cleveland do it live--FREE--in your neighborhood. See http://citymusiccleveland.org for details.
