This scene took place on the steps of a festival concert hall in the US one summer, where an orchestra had just been rehearsing Haydn’s Symphony no. 82…..
“You know, I’m actually enjoying this piece.”
“Yeah, me too. I kind of expected it to be boring ‘cause its Haydn, but it’s really fun to play and quite unpredictable.”
“You know, I think it’s called “The Bear” or “The Bull,” or something like that.”
”The Bear.. That makes sense. You know, I did think it was pretty good for a Haydn symphony.”
