Today, on Joseph Haydn’s 277th birthday (born 31 march, 1732 in Rohrau) the “official” Burgenland starts with the celebration years program at Schloss Esterházy in Eisenstadt.
And there will be some things similar to Haydn’s conditions of employment during his 30 years at the court of the Esterházy’s, when he composed and played for the aristocrat familiy and their guests:
also today and tomorrow Nikolaus Harnoncourt and his Concentus Musicus (with an excellent Haydn-program!) will only be heard by a privileged scene of invited politicians, economic people, sponsors and – more or less – public characters of the “scene” – and journalists!

It’s a question of private imagination power to realize, how many percent of today’s listeners at the Haydn-Celebration-Year opening love music, especially Haydn’s music – or take just a seat in the famous Haydnsaal and try to show the own face in some jounalist’s camera for own promotion aims and commercial reasons ..
ugh…..
In the meantime a lot of Haydn-lovers celebrate their much-admired “Genius Loci” at their players by listening to the wonderful masterpieces of music that enhance their lifes since mor than 2 and a half centuries.
-and so will I!
Salute, Joe!

haydn reloaded II – a modern painter’s view

mask001
Maybe you ask yourself, what kind of portrait should this be?
The Austrian painter Andreas Roseneder (alias “René Desor”, here his blog) was in search of clues to between Haydn’s and today’s “affecting” surrounding –  after numerous visits at the Esterházy Castle in Eisenstadt with his Leica.  His new artworks are the result of a 2 years research about Haydn and the people and faces around him: a contemporary view in brilliant artwork quality, made with the newest materials (the paintings here are made with a special kind of acrylic and vinylic colors).
If you visit Esterházy Castle have a look at the “visages” up at the wall of the Castle and courtyard there!

You feel encircled by curious, funny faces that make grimaces and all are different! Already Joseph Haydn was surrounded by this grimaces when he lived and worked there for 30 years. Andreas Roseneder was inspired by those faces,  remarkable characters to his “haydn_ sketch series”.
