About this event
Just as legendary as the love of splendour of Haydn's long-time employer Nicolaus I ‘the Magnificent’ was the love of hunting the Princes Esterházy shared with their guests. So it is no wonder that, for their musical entertainment, they liked to call upon that idiosyncratic instrument whose sound was capable like no other of conjuring up the image of a successful chase: the natural horn. Haydn’s "horn-focused" symphonies – including Nos. 48, 59 and 31, presented here – often strike a particularly "fiery" note and lead us, in terms of content, to another princely pleasure of those days: fireworks and illuminations.
For its Haydn2032 project, leading up to the 300th anniversary of Joseph Haydn's birth in 2032, the Joseph Haydn Foundation in Basel is organising, producing and financing the performance and recording of all 107 of the composer's symphonies by Il Giardino Armonico and Basel Chamber Orchestra under the artistic direction of Giovanni Antonini, one of the most highly-respected specialists in baroque, early classical and classical music.
