No composer makes a happier noise than Joseph Haydn – and when Alison Balsom is the soloist, you’ve got a concert that’s pretty much guaranteed to lift the spirits. After all, symphonies simply don’t get any more cheerful than Beethoven’s Second – except maybe Dvořák’s Eighth! Village bands, singing birds and hummable tunes: instant sunshine, delivered with wit and charm by the young British conductor Ben Gernon.
