The programme for the Haydneum Opening Festival is a remarkably coherent one. Three works of church music by three great Viennese classical composers. Not only were the composers contemporaries, they also knew each other: Albrechtsberger (1736-1809) was a classmate of Michael Haydn's (1737-1806) and a friend of Joseph's (1732-1809).
Haydn set the text of the Te Deum to music twice: the work to be heard today is the second one, a late masterpiece dating from 1800. Albrechtsberger wrote his Miserere in B minor while serving as the Vienna court organist. Michael Haydn's rarely heard Saint Francis Mass, commissioned by the Vienna Court, was given its first historically informed modern-day performance here in Hungary in 2017, with György Vashegyi also conducting then. Under his leadership, the Purcell Choir and Orfeo Orchestra -... Hungary's two pivotal workshops of the historically informed interpretation of early music - have filled many gaps with their productions over the past three decades; the quartet of world renowned soloists taking the stage in front of them is composed of specialists in both the era and repertoire.
