Haydn and Friends
Holy Trinity Sloane Square, SW1X 9BZ, Tuesday 7 November at 7.30pm
The Esterhazy Singers trace their roots with a programme featuring works by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Beethoven was born in Bonn, Germany; Haydn was born in Rohrau, Austria and Mozart in Salzburg, Austria. The paths of these three great masters were all destined to cross when they traveled to Vienna. It is believed that at an early age Beethoven went to Vienna to perform for Mozart and that later on he studied with Haydn. Mozart and Haydn had a well documented acquaintance - both dedicating works to each other, and no doubt, meeting in Vienna when Haydn was away from his duties at the Esterhazy Court.
The concert programme is: Mozart Vesperae solennes de confessore (1780), Beethoven Elegische Gesang (1814) and Haydn Paukenmesse (1796).
Inspired by the Esterhazy family, well-known patrons to musicians and composers including Haydn, we proudly provide young talented singers an opportunity to get experience with an established choir. By attending our concerts, you are helping us continue - and expand - the choral scholarship scheme.
