Brahms: First and Foremost


The evening begins with a performance of the first symphony by Joseph Haydn. Haydn acted as Kappelmeister, essentially the “director of music,” for the Esterházy court in Eisenstadt, Austria. He held this position for 40 years, which gave him the great luxury of time to compose. And compose he did! His Symphony No. 1 is the first of more than 100 symphonies.  During his lifetime the concert platform grew in popularity, giving musical performance a life beyond religious celebrations. Although often called the “Father of the Symphony,” he did not actually invent the form, although he did establish a standard form for the symphony, and he did the same for the sonata and the string quartet.
