Gryphon Baryton Trio: Haydn

Thu 22 February @ 20:00 - 21:30

$20 – $35

BRUNSWICK BEETHOVEN FESTIVAL PART 2: CONCERT 6

Joseph Haydn was indisputably a fundamental influence during Beethoven's early career. This is a rare chance to hear Haydn's chamber works for baryton, performed with their intended instrumentation. The magnificent baryton, similar to a bass viol but with an extra course of metal sympathetic strings, was an instrument much favoured by Haydn's employer, Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy.

Haydn composed over 130 works for it, the majority of which take the form of Divertimenti for baryton, viola and ‘cello - the so-called "Baryton Trios", in which the baryton plays a critical role. These delightful works are full of invention and colour, with the combination of low instruments creating a unique, beautiful sonority.

These trios have hitherto not been performable in the Antipodes in their original form, but the commission of a new baryton in 2023 enables the Gryphon Baryton Trio to share this music as it was intended.
