    Haydn’s lively symphony has been a favorite since its London premiere, and seems much too sociable for its nickname; but its cymbals and bass drum sounded warlike in 1794 and are startling even now.

"More than most regional orchestras, Symphony Silicon Valley has a way of stepping outside the box, inviting its audience to take a less familiar ride.
