Classical music often struggles to cast off its sober image. And yet many composers have sought to infuse their music with wit, humor, and outright comedy. This intriguing program brings together some of the most memorable such attempts, from Haydn’s famous “Surprise” Symphony to Stravinsky’s neo-classical Pulcinella Suite, complete with pantomime by Happenstance Theater.

Haydn   Symphony No. 94 in G (“Surprise”)
Guinivan   New Work (world premiere)
R.Strauss/Hasenoehrl   Till Eulenspiegel, einmal anders, for violin, clarinet, horn, bassoon, double bass
Stravinsky Pulcinella Suite, for orchestra with pantomime
