Cellist Josh Salter joins the OAE on tour to Eisenstadt, Austria

Mon 28 Sep 2015

I recently had the great pleasure of joining the OAE on a little tour to Eisenstadt, Austria, playing a little bit of Schubert and lots of Haydn in the Esterhazy Palace where he worked. It was my first international tour, and my first freelance work with the OAE, having been a member of the Ann and Peter Law Experience Scheme this year.

OAE Patrons in Eisenstadt

Mon 28 Sep 2009

Earlier this month, I travelled with a group of our patrons to Austria for a performance by the OAE in the Schloss Esterházy in Eisenstadt. Haydn worked in the Esterházy for over 30 years and it seemed a perfect time for this trip to celebrate Haydn’s Bicentenary.

Day One
After a hassle-free flight to Vienna we travelled to Eisenstadt, which is approximately 1 hour from the airport. That evening we dined outdoors at a lovely restaurant directly opposite the Schloss Esterházy. We sat outside to make the most of the balmy evening but blankets were a nice touch as the night turned cooler.

Day Two
Morning walking tour of the Jewish Quarter, Haydn Mausoleum and Schloss Esterházy, along with hordes of other tourists. The patrons then spent the afternoon in Hungary and thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Eszterháza.

We were all very excited about hearing the Orchestra perform in the Haydnsaal. As always, the Orchestra played beautifully and the acoustics were simply superb. Following the concert, Laurence Cummings and some of the other players from the OAE joined us for a hearty feast. We enjoyed a seasonal dinner, starting with pumpkin soup, which was the best I have ever had!

Day Three
Back to London with long delays checking into Heathrow…
