About the album

Three surprisingly beautiful and musically exciting Divertimenti for winds and strings by Joseph Haydn, and a Divertimento for oboe, viola and double bass by his younger brother Michael. Performed by members of the renowned Schönbrunn Ensemble on period instruments on the basis of the original manuscripts and first editions from Haydn's time. Very seldom recorded works and hard to find played on original instruments. So this album not only offers the re-discovery of some absolutely wonderful compositions, but also stylish and inspired performances of repertoire that will be of great interest to listeners in general.
De herontdekking van de prachtige Divertimenti van Haydn
Dit album bevat drie verrassend mooie en muzikaal opwindende Divertimenti voor houtblazers en strijkers van Joseph Haydn, en een Divertimento voor hobo, altviool en contrabas van zijn jongere broer Michael. Ze worden op historische instrumenten uitgevoerd door leden van het vermaarde Schönbrunn Ensemble. De uitvoeringen zijn gebaseerd op originele manuscripten en eerste uitgaven uit Haydns tijd. Ze worden zelden opgenomen, en het is nog lastiger om een historische opname van deze werken te vinden. Het album biedt dus niet alleen de herontdekking van enkele absoluut prachtige composities, maar ook stijlvolle en inspirerende uitvoeringen van groots repertoire.

Ensemble Schönbrunn heeft met meer dan 25 jaar aan concerten en opnames van kamermuziek reikend van Frescobaldi tot Debussy een bewonderenswaardige reputatie opgebouwd. Oprichter en artistiek leider Marten Root richt zich op het uitvoeren van onbekend repertoire. Het ensemble onderscheidt zichzelf ook door de vernieuwende presentatie van bekende meesterwerken uit de kamermuziek.

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...

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 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,...
