In Spring 2009, the year of Joseph Haydn, Xavier de Maistre was invited to the Esterházy Castle in Eisenstadt, where the composer officiated nearly thirty years. After an introduction in which he plays a solo Fantasy on a Theme of Haydn by Marcel Grandjany, we find with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Bertrand de Billy performing the Haydn Concerto in D Major. The solo pieces Mandolin by Elias Parish-Alvars and Arabesque No. 1 by Claude Debussy complete this program.
