Haydyn's Solar Poetics
Next Occurrence : 05 Mar 2022
The top minds of Europe were abuzz in 1761. Venus was transiting the sun for the first time since science had twigged our place in the solar system. Meanwhile, the most enlightened of Austria’s ruling families needed a composer to provide content for their pre-eminent orchestra.
The 29-year-old Joseph Haydn was not only up for it, he kept the job for over 30 years, producing music of astonishing quality and quantity. The Morning, Noon and Night symphonies were the first of some 80 that were written for the Esterházy band. They are utterly delightful and quirky. Our world-renowned Australian Haydn Ensemble, directed from the keyboard by Erin Helyard, will present them in three concerts, appropriately spread across a single day.
