The Windsor Symphony Orchestra Intimate Classics Series: It's not very often you see musicians get up and walk off stage mind-performance. In 1772, in response to the long hours his musicians were forced to work, Hayden wrote the Farewell Symphony to raise awareness of a potential uprising to his employer, Prince Esterhazy. The symphony features a choreographed and strategic exodus of musicians from the stage one-by-one (in the middle of the work!) until only two musicians remain. No need to worry, the WSO will be back in their seats to perform Schubert's Symphony No. 5.
