During the second half of the 18th century, the symphony became the most important genre of orchestral music, while Haydn – having been perfecting it for over four decades – can be credited with having led its crystallisation and development from late-Baroque roots to mature Classicism. But why Haydn so extreme? As Capella Cracoviensis explains, the idea came from a universal desire to play music, to return to works which shaped our culture, and to perform and finesse art. And it’s even more powerful than that: the ensemble aims to perform all of Haydn’s symphonies – a mere 108 compositions! – by 2023.
