During the second half of the 18th century, the symphony became the most important genre of orchestral music, while Haydn – having been perfecting it for over four decades – can be credited with having led its crystallisation and development from late-Baroque roots to mature Classicism. But why Haydn extreme? As Capella Cracoviensis explains, the idea came from a universal desire to play music, to return to works which shaped our culture, and to perform and finesse art. And it’s even more powerful than that: the ensemble aims to perform all of Haydn’s symphonies – a mere 108 compositions! – by 2023.

The symphonic adventure kicks off on 10 May at the Kraków Philharmonic, with the ensemble – led by Jan Tomasz Adamus, also playing pianoforte – performing works numbered 1 to 5 in the Hoboken catalogue. The next three compositions fill the entire Saturday 19 May: Symphony No. 6, popularly nicknamed “The Morning”, resounds at 6am at the Church of St Benedict, followed by “Midday” (No. 7) and “Evening” (No. 8) at noon and 8pm, respectively, at Cricoteka. The musicians are led by concertmaster Robert Bachara. On 22 May, Haydn’s symphonies (Nos. 9-12) return to the Philharmonic, where Capella Cracoviensis will be joined by the eminent violinist Jorge Jiménez. We will hear three more instalments of Haydn extreme later this year, on 21 June and 3 and 27 September. (Barbara Skowrońska)
