Il Giardino Armonico and Joseph Haydn – a combination that promises esprit. The Viennese classicist’s second major oratorio after his famous »Creation« is dedicated to the changing seasons. The work is a celebration of the perfection of nature in the spirit of the Enlightenment. A light and video installation adds an impressive visual layer to the music and transforms the church.
