Roaming The Classical Period
Music from the 18th century.
Every music lover knows the music of Joseph Haydn. He is one of the most performed composers of the classical period. The work of his younger brother Michael (1737-1806) is much less well-known and is relatively rarely performed, certainly in the concert hall. This programme is entirely dedicated to him. We hear three divertimenti for different instrumentations.
