Händel and Haydn remembered

Exactly 250 ago German composer George Frideric Händel died at the age of 74 in London. Fifty years later Austrian composer Joseph Haydn was dying in Vienna at the age of 77. To commemorate these two anniversaries, the Budapest Baroque Festival is dedicating its fourth edition to the two great composers with fourteen evening concerts at Budapest’s St. Michael’s Church, from September 17 to September 11.
