This is the new beauty of orchids: the Phalaenopsis “Joseph Haydn”. Her grower is Alois Handlbauer (Linz, Austria).

Mentor for the naming act was Adam Fischer, conductor and founder of the Austrian Hungarian Haydn Philharmonic Orchestra and one of the most profound knower of Haydn and his work.

The “official” ehibition (by Burgenland governement) to the Haydn-Anniversary, “Phänomen Haydn” was opened. On 4 locations in Eisenstadt visitors can get an idea of Haydn’s era, the circumstances of his life & believe – if you like to immerse into a past era.

The exhibition has nothing to do with any contemporary view on Haydn’s work or life – just focused on the past.

More inspiring, modern and interesting for a nowadays contemporary view on Haydn is the exhibition of the former “employers” of Haydn, the Esterházys at their exhibition “Haydn explosiv”. More about that soon here!
