Haydn Trio Eisenstadt

November 16, 2009 - 11:33pm
Music ensembles, rockers, famous radio hosts and comedians converge on Syracuse during an event-packed Tuesday.

Before the campus becomes a ghost town for Thanksgiving break, there will be a surge of life in the next week, providing alternatives to final papers and projects.

Tuesday is especially notable with at least six major speakers, concerts and performances in Syracuse. Make plans to attend at least one of these and keep yourself safely distracted from studying for a night.

The Haydn Trio Eisenstadt will premiere a work by South African composer Bongani Ndodana-Breen for a free SU concert.

The Austrian composer Joseph Haydn once said that his musical language could be understood anywhere in the world. 

The Haydn Trio Eisenstadt is celebrating this sentiment for the bicentennial of Haydn's death this year. In a project entitled “D2H” (dedicated to Haydn), the group commissioned six Austrian composers, six composers from other European countries and six composers from outside the continent to write a piano trio in his honor.
