J. Haydn
The Seasons

8:30pm | St. Stephen’s Cathedral


Hardly any other work better captures the moods of dusk and dawn or the waning of winter before spring than Joseph Haydn's Seasons.

In musical pictures, the oratorio describes the course of the year of nature and man, whereby he describes in detail incidents and moods in the cycle of the year: the hard work of the farmer, shimmering heat or an approaching thunderstorm, the wild hunt with blaring horns, the dissipating morning mist, icy cold and domestic diligence on long evenings - all cast in tone-painting, immediately comprehensible sounds.

Joseph Haydn, a former choirboy at St. Stephen's Cathedral, created a pioneering work with his Seasons. With the theme of closeness to nature, Haydn referred early to the approaching epoch of Romanticism and inspired composers such as Schubert and Weber.

Look forward to Haydn's last great work with Cornelia Horak and Daniel Johannsen as soloists, the Chorakademie Vorarlberg and the Vienna Cathedral Orchestra conducted by Markus Landerer.
