Orlando Paladino http://tpr.org en The Season Finale: Franz Josef Haydn’s 'Orlando Paladino' http://tpr.org/post/season-finale-franz-josef-haydn-s-orlando-paladino <p>At one time Franz Josef Haydn had the best and worst job in the world. From his earliest youth he had found his way into the employ of the Eszterhazy family. Once he settled in, and with the exception of the rare argument, this arrangement (1761-1802) continued into his final retirement from ill health. He started with Prince Paul Anton (Pal Antal 1711-1762) first as assistant Kapellemeister and then the top post. But after that patron’s death his real compositional life began.</p> Thu, 29 Nov 2012 23:47:27 +0000 Ron Moore 2538 at http://tpr.org The Season Finale: Franz Josef Haydn’s 'Orlando Paladino'
