Saving Michael Haydn
Mozart Overture The Marriage of Figaro
Michael Haydn Violin Concerto in A
Mozart Posthorn Serenade
Alina Ibragimova director/ violin
Alina Ibragimova explores music by Joseph Haydn’s often-ignored, but almost as prolific, younger brother.
Who’s heard of Michael Haydn? Haydn’s brother wrote almost as much music as his more famous sibling. But he didn’t catalogue it properly, and so it’s fallen into obscurity ever since.
Violinist Alina Ibragimova wants to revive Michael’s legacy, and is on a mission to record all his violin concertos.
She performs perhaps the best of them, his Violin Concerto in A major, with us in this concert.
It’s paired with music by Michael Haydn’s contemporary, Mozart, who of course has a very different legacy.
This includes a rare opportunity to hear his Posthorn Serenade, featuring a star turn for the instrument used in the 18th century to signal the arrival of the mail coach.
