Haydn Ensemble’s new performances

Step into a world of musical brilliance as the Australian Haydn Ensemble (AHE) takes you on an extraordinary journey with their captivating performances of Haydn’s Time of Day. This enchanting concert series showcases the talents of the AHE’s skilled musicians and pays homage to the renowned Esterhazy orchestra, featuring beautiful solos for each instrument.

The AHE aims to recreate the grandeur of the Esterhazy orchestra, capturing its essence with a talented group of soloists. One highlight of this concert is the inclusion of Prince Nikolaus’ favorite instrument, the baryton, expertly played by the virtuoso violone player, Laura Vaughan. Audiences will have the rare opportunity to experience the unique and magical sound of this instrument, as it is the only one in Australia. In fact, this will be its first-ever performance in Sydney and Canberra, adding an air of excitement to these concerts. Furthermore, the Sydney concert will also mark the Australian premiere of the rarely heard baryton octet.

The AHE’s Haydn’s Time of Day performances follow their highly successful tour in the United States in October, where they wowed audiences with nine mesmerizing concerts across the country. Their debut performance at the prestigious Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York was met with great acclaim, as was their showcase performance at the opening of the new Australian Embassy in Washington DC. Audiences were captivated by their exceptional talent, giving standing ovations at every concert.

The 2023 season of the AHE has already seen remarkable performances, including Haydn’s Sun & Mendelssohn’s Stars, Haydn’s L’ours (The Bear), and Telemann’s Die Stille Nacht featuring the esteemed artists David Greco and Melissa Farrow. With each performance, the AHE continues to solidify their reputation as one of Australia’s leading historically informed orchestras and chamber music ensembles.
