Event description

Description

In 1791, Austrian composer Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was already greatly admired in England. Having just been released from his service to the court of Esterházy, Haydn made the first of two trips to London, where he enjoyed many months being celebrated by musical society, lucrative commissions, and most notably, the famous 12 ‘London’ Symphonies. Taking advantage of a huge market in domestic music making, Haydn composed two sets of songs, or ‘canzonettas’, to English texts, and several piano trios and chamber works in various combinations, including three delightful trios for flute, cello and piano.

This engaging and elegant concert programme features songs and chamber music with flute from Haydn’s London sojourns, and is performed by some of Ireland’s finest musicians, it will take place in the Entrance Hall.
