Michael Haydn Project is a music group that casts a multidirectional spotlight in composers who have left a legacy of fine works but who have been forgotten, including Michael Haydn, the younger brother of Joseph Haydn, with the aim of bringing their music to a wider audience. For this concert, the group focuses on the connections between Michael Haydn and composers from later generations working after his death, presenting an alternative look at the musical history of Austria.
