Notes and Editorial Reviews

This memorial concert celebrating the bicentenary of Haydn’s death took place at Schloss Esterházy in Eisenstadt, the very place where this prolific composer wrote and performed the majority of his works. With Fischer conducting the Austro-Hungarian Haydn Philharmonic – already recipients of two ECHO Klassik awards for their Haydn recordings – and in the company of three distinguished soloists, they perform The Creation, arguably the composer’s most beloved work of all time. Recorded live at the Haydnsaal, Schloß Esterhazy, Eisenstadt, 31 May 2009

 wonderfully authentic experience October 20, 2017 By John Brauer (Fish Creek, WI) See All My Reviews "This DVD was recorded 200 years after the death of Joseph Haydn in the music hall of Esterhazy Palace where he premiered much of his music. His Creation is a real masterpiece. The choir and orchestra are great, as are the soloists. Our favorite is Thomas Quasthoff, who was a Thalidomide baby. How inspiring he is with his wonderful bass voice! No music school would take him because he can’t play the piano, but he succeeded despite all odds! For any lover of Haydn, this DVD is a MUST have."
