About the album

Horn Concertos by Michael & Joseph Haydn
It is difficult to ascertain how many horn concertos Joseph Haydn and his younger brother Michael actually wrote. Certain works are lost; others are erroneously ascribed, or their authenticity is at least doubtful. One of the concertos has even been ascribed by different musicologists to Joseph and to Michael Haydn, but it may have been written by another person entirely. The two brothers wrote most of their concertos for the widest variety of solo instruments, but usually in the same type of situation: i.e. once they had assumed important posts at the head of renowned court orchestras. Joseph Haydn became Kapellmeister for the Ezterházy princes in 1761, and Michael became concertmaster of the Salzburg archdiocese court orchestra in 1763.
The court musicians in both orchestras were virtuosos in their own right, and one of the tasks of a Kapellmeister consisted in composing new works that permitted them to display their outstanding abilities in the presence of their sovereigns.
(Excerpt from the liner notes by Dr. Arnim Raab, Haydn-Institut)

Michael Haydn

Johann Michael Haydn was an Austrian composer of the classical age. He was the younger brother of the much more famous Joseph Haydn.  Michael started his musical career as a choir boy at the St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. When his voice matured, he was forced to leave the choir and so he fully dedicated himself to composing.  He composed primarily sacred music and besides about 40 symphonies, partitas, works for organ and chamber music. Especially his masses, with a remarkable use of Gregorian chant, reflect the Austrian sacred music practice of the Enlightenment. His Requiem had a significant influence on the Mozart's Requiem. In 1757, he was named director of music in Großwardein and in 1762 he became the concert master and conductor of...

In 1757, he was named director of music in Großwardein and in 1762 he became the concert master and conductor of the bishop in Salzburg. He stayed in this function for 43 years. In Salzburg, he befriended Mozart, who admired his work. Meanwhile, he composed over 360 works in this period. Michael Haydn is nowadays considered as one of the first composers who composed seminal works for male choir. He also teached Carl Maria von Weber and Anton Diabelli. Schubert, who undoubtedly knew of his male choirs, was brought to tears at his grave in Salzburg. The birth home of the brothers Haydn can still be visited today in Rohrau, where a museum honouring the two composers has been erected.

Joseph Haydn

(Franz) Joseph Haydn was a prolific Austrian composer of the Classical period. He was instrumental in the development of chamber music such as the piano trio and his contributions to musical form have earned him the epithets 'Father of the Symphony' and 'Father of the String Quartet'.   Haydn spent much of his career as a court musician for the wealthy Esterházy family at their remote estate. Until the later part of his life, this isolated him from other composers and trends in music so that he was, as he put it, 'forced to become original'. Yet his music circulated widely and for much of his career he was the most celebrated composer in Europe.   He was a friend and mentor of Mozart,...
