 Select a Player to showcase World-Renowned Haydntage via Live Webcast
San Diego, CA (September 7, 1999) - Global Music Network (, the Internet’s premier site for complete live performances of classical, opera, and jazz, will webcast a selection of audio and video performances from this week’s Haydntage (Haydn Festival) in Eisenstadt, Austria. The online music network will showcase five concerts live and in their entirety from the famed event, including Haydn’s opera “Armida.”

“This is a great opportunity for people to go online and experience one of the high points of the European concert season,” said Dr. Walter Reicher, Artistic Director of the festival. “With its multiple platforms of the latest technologies, we feel that is the perfect outlet to showcase the works of Joseph Haydn and other legendary composers.”

Taking place each September, The Haydntage is considered a high point of the European concert season. The music of Joseph Haydn remains the centerpiece of the festival, along with the works of other composers.

“It is a privilege for us to showcase a festival that features the work of a master such as Haydn,” said Michael Lubin, Chairman and CEO of “From the fantastic music, to the setting of Haydn Hall, one of the most beautiful and acoustically superior concert settings in the world, it is easy to see why this is indeed a special event.”
