Program notes

The illustrious Chamber Orchestra of Europe join pianist Dénes Várjon and violinist Veronike Eberle for a sublime, era-spanning evening of chamber music, live from the gorgeous Haydnsaal in Esterházy Palace!

This singular and smartly chosen, somewhat eclectic program centers around two instruments that are no stranger to the limelight: the piano and the violin. Opening the festivities is an orchestral masterwork by the palace's most famous longtime resident, whose name still adorns the concert hall: Haydn's Symphony No. 34, written shortly before the pre-Romantic Sturm und Drang period with a slow, quasi-Romantic opening movement. Dénes Várjon and Veronika Eberle next take the stage for the enchanting and rarely heard Concerto for Violin and Piano by Hummel, Mozart's most famous pupil and a rival of Beethoven in their day. We then take a delightfully unexpected detour to the twentieth century for Janáček's Concertino for Piano, Two Violins, Viola, Clarinet, Horn and Bassoon, a healthy mix of intellectual modernity and easygoing naturalism. This incredible group of artists conclude their program with an undersung gem of early Romanticism: Mendelssohn's Concerto for Piano, Violin, and Strings in D Minor, suffused with stately nobility, fiery passion, and brilliant virtuosity.

This is just one of over a thousand thrilling concerts available on, the web's leading classical music streaming platform!
