Franz Joseph Haydn

We are now preparing a new concert program, and this time we are focusing on the great composer Franz Joseph Haydn.

Together with Mozart and Beethoven, Haydn is one of the most prominent composers of the classical period. During his lifespan he composed a great number of solo, chamber and orchestral music, and was one of the pioneers in developing music for the symphony orchestra and string quartet. He was a strong influence to his contemporaries, inspiring composers and musicians such as François de Fossa, Ferdinando Carulli and Fernando Sor, to leave behind a wonderful musical treasure containing arrangements, and not least original compositions in the spirit of Haydn for the guitar.

We are very excited to start working on this project, and will keep you updated during the process and announce upcoming concert dates.
