Haydn Trio Eisenstadt Haydn Trio Eisenstadt (Wolfgang Simlinger)

Austria's Haydn Trio Eisenstadt perform two of their namesake's works on WNYC's Soundcheck.

Franz Joseph Haydn is considered the father of the symphony and the string quartet. He might also be historys most underrated composer. As the music world marks the bicentennial of Haydn's death, we explore how the composers gift for humor may be at the root of why he's not taken seriously.

I just loved that video, for its clarity of sight (better than even sitting on stage with the musicians, as one can at many chamber music concerts) and its clarity of tone.
Please let us have many more such, as often as you can, and let them be accessible for a while, in case there are days whn one cannot access one's PC.
