Haydn’s Applausus with Classical Opera

We have recently spoken with Ian Page of the Classical Opera company and we’re delighted to hear that they will give a performance of Haydn’s Applausus at Cadogan Hall next month with a first class cast of young singers. Ian writes:

Commissioned to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Cistercian abbot taking his monastic vows in the small Austrian town of Zwettl, this work has been largely forgotten, but the music is revelatory, ranging from the ‘Sturm und Drang’ dynamism of its two bass arias to two exquisite tenor concertante arias featuring extended solos for harpsichord and violin respectively.
