The Haydn Festival

The International Haydn days – which take place annually in September – are a high point of the concert season.

The works of Joseph Haydn are naturally at the heart of the festival. This musical focus is framed by the works of other composers to provide a context, offering a compare and contrast approach to the musical compositions of Haydbn and his contemporaries. Furthermore, through the comparison of original ensembles and ‘modern’ orchestras, the public is given the opportunity to experience a variety of performing styles.

Additionally, through the annual changing areas of focus, such as ‘Haydn and London’, ‘Haydn and Vocal Music’, ‘Hunting and Wine’, among others, access to the entire works of the master is made possible.

The Austro-Hungarian Haydn Orchestra was founded by Adam Fischer in corporation with the Haydn Festival, and is the ‘orchestra-in-residence’ at the Haydn Festival and has always been led by him since then.

A specific of the orchestra is a so-called ‘Eisenstadt or Pannonian Style’. Moreover, every effort has been made to record in CD-quality all of the Haydn Symphonies played in the Haydn Hall.

The consistent following and continuation of the programme design, under the artistic direction of Dr. Walter Reicher, has meanwhile led to the Haydn Festival becoming the ‘Centre for the international world of Haydn’.
