Joseph Haydn - An Original

Join us for the lecture 'Joseph Haydn - An Original,' a multi-media presentation about Haydn's life, works and places by Prof. Dr. Walter Reicher, Artistic Director of the Haydn Festival Eisenstadt.

The Austrian composer Joseph Haydn was and is still one of the most influential composers. Classical Music without him would not be as it is today. He's called the 'Father of Symphony' and 'Father of the String Quartet.' Beethoven was Haydn's pupil, Mozart was his friend.

Walter Reicher is the artistic director of the Haydn Festival in Eisenstadt since 25 years, where Haydn spent more than forty years of his life at the Court of the Prince Esterházy. Reicher has a significant role in shaping Eisenstadt and the Festival into the 'Center of the Haydn World.'
