MUSIC FOR A GREAT SPACE at the WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL

HAYDN FESTIVAL

Franz Joseph Haydn used a new musical language to invent the symphony, the concerto, the string quartet, the piano trio, and the piano sonata.

Our Haydn festival – featuring today’s most thrilling Haydn pianist — begins with the premise that Haydn is the least understood of the major Classical composers, bristling with rhythmic euphoria and spur-of-the-moment invention.

“A level of technical perfection allied to vigorous intellectual
curiosity and the probing instincts of a distinguished performer
[all of which] have never before been brought to bear
so acutely and consistently

Gramophone Magazine on Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s landmark recording of the complete Haydn keyboard sonatas.
