Programme

It is somewhat fitting that some of the first music to appear from Haydn’s new surroundings at the Esterházy palace would begin in the morning ‘Le Matin’ with a glorious sunrise. Only his 6th symphonic creation, this was just the beginning of a parenthood that would see him become the true father of the symphony, bringing forth 104 symphonies in total. As if being father to the symphony and the string quartet weren’t enough for ‘Papa’ Haydn, his vocal works are full of glorious treasures, brought to life here by soprano Sarah Traubel.
