J C Bach; Symphony In E flat major Op.9 No.2 (1st Movement)
Pergolesi: Stabat Mater
Arne: Harpsichord Concerto
Haydn: Symphony No. 94 in G major Surprise

Haydn was the darling of the English audiences and was commissioned to compose a series of ‘London’ symphonies including the Surprise. Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater is his most celebrated work, achieving great popularity throughout Europe. After the composer's death Jean-Jaques Rousseau described it as "the most perfect and touching duet to come from the pen of any composer". JC Bach was nicknamed the English Bach having won the adoration of the audiences here, but even greater adoration was offered to the most successful English composer of the day - Thomas Arne.
