Haydn festival tour

Music Festival Tour Package

Joseph HAYDN MUSIC Festival Eisenstadt, Austria

Haydn Festival dates: September 4-14 September 2014

Hadyn Festival Vienna Eisenstadt

Eisenstadt, The City of Joseph Haydn

The name Joseph Haydn is inseparably linked to the Burgenland capital, Eisenstadt. For more than forty years the composer lived and worked here, directing the orchestra of the Esterhazy Princes. Many of the buildings associated with Haydn's years in Eisenstadt have survived to this day, including the Haydn Hall in the Esterhazy Palace with its exceptional acoustics, and the Bergkirche, the church in which Haydn's tomb stands.  Each year the program features the leading Haydn interpreters and foremost musicians of the day - performers like Riccardo Muti, Sir Roger Norrington, Agnes Baltsa and Jose Carreras have appeared with top orchestras during previous years.

Eisenstadt, the capital of the federal province of Burgenland since 1925, is situated on the southern slopes of the Leitha Mountains at the Hungarian Boarder.  Surrounded by a great number of vineyards and famous for its tasty red wines, Eisenstadt is the smallest federal capital of Austria with only 13,250 inhabitants.

The resident atmosphere of the Festival sets the program apart from the typical European "tour."  Participants live in Eisenstadt, where Haydn served the Hungarian nobility for more than thirty years.  There is an opportunity to truly get to know this quaint town which fostered the genius of Haydn, Beethoven and others.  In no time at all, participants are calling Eisenstadt their "home away from home."
