Explore the similarities and connections between two works composed over a 122-year time span. Host Paul Rissmann guides us through Prokofiev’s effervescent first symphony, “Classical,” — an homage to classical form — and Haydn’s dramatic last symphony, “London.”

PROKOFIEV –Symphony No. 1 “Classical”
HAYDN – Symphony No. 104 “London”


Host Paul Rissmann presents this innovative program exploring classical music in a fun and fresh format. Through images, sound bites and interviews with our musicians, NAKED CLASSICS deconstructs some of the greatest works in the orchestral repertoire, uncovering secrets in the score, and exploring the composer’s life and times. At the end, you will be treated to a full performance of the works.

NAKED CLASSICS is for everyone — from the frequent concertgoer to the newcomer. We invite you to be entertained and enlightened!
