Haydn Festival in Eisenstadt

A musical September in the Burgenland

In 2014, Esterházy Castle in Eisenstadt becomes the focal point of interest for music enthusiasts: the Haydn Festival is one of the most important musical festivals in Europe and celebrates its 25 year anniversary.

Since the Haydn Festival was first launched in 1986, it has focused on the complete works of Joseph Haydn who worked as a musician for the Esterházy estate in Eisenstadt for more than 40 years.

Joseph Haydn and the Haydn Festival in Eisenstadt

“My language is understood all over the world,” Joseph Haydn once famously said and his success proved him right. The composer worked in Eisenstadt from 1761 where most of his works were created. Joseph Haydn taught Ludwig van Beethoven who admired Haydn throughout his life. Salieri, Mozart, Empress Maria Theresia: the life and works of Joseph Haydn are accompanied by some of the biggest names of the era. Haydn pursued his artistic path undeterred in the Burgenland region.

The Haydn Festival focuses on the overall works of this diverse musician: his musical career spans from chamber music to spiritual works and large-scale symphonies.

HERBSTGOLD – Festival in Eisenstadt

„HERBSTGOLD – Festival in Eisenstadt“ heißt das neue Festival im Schlossquartier, das erstmals vom 6. bis 16. September 2017 die Haydn-Stadt mit den vier programmatischen Säulen aus Klassik, Balkan- und Romamusik, Jazz sowie Kulinarik und der Tradition des historischen Ortes von ihrer schönsten und klangvollsten Seite präsentiert.
Stars aus der Klassik wie der britische Tenor Ian Bostridge, der Cellist Nicolas Altstaedt und der Pianist Alexander Lonquich geben sich in Eisenstadt ein Stelldichein mit dem südfranzösischen Roma-Virtuosen Titi Robin oder dem Original Kocani Orkestar aus Mazedonien. Experimentelle Wege werden beim Quartett-Marathon im Schloss Esterházy beschritten, wenn drei Streichquartette und ein Bläserquartett viele Räume zum Klingen bringen werden.

Tickets erhältlich unter: www.herbstgold.at

Another musical highlight in the cultural year in Burgenland is the Liszt Festival Raiding.
