Members of the LPO play Haydn at the National Gallery | VIDEO

In the second of their performances matching chamber music with paintings from the National Gallery, members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra bring together Joseph Haydn’s ‘String trio in C major’ of 1766 and a painting by François-Hubert Drouais. Created only a couple of years apart in the 1760s, they demonstrate the precision and balance typical of chamber music of the period paired with an immaculate image of perfection that is Madame de Pompadour with her embroidery.
