Haydn 2032 is a unique conceptual art project that will realise the performance and recording of all 107 Haydn symphonies by the composer’s 300th birthday in 2032. Every year, the orchestras “Il Giardino Armonico” and “Kammerorchester Basel” will perform a further set of symphonies in different venues in Europe. Each concert performance is a modern interpretation of the concert settings of the 18th century to include lectures, photography exhibitions, talks and culinary events. In May 2015, these events took place in Berlin, Eisenstadt and Basel. The recordings of each concert cycle are released on a CD (label “Outhere”) as well as limited edition art books including a CD, images and texts by well-known contemporary authors and photographers.
