Lauded as “delightfully inventive” by The Strad and “flawlessly performed’ by Ritmo, the Valencia Baryton Project was formed with the vision of performing the nearly 160 works written by Franz Joseph Haydn for the baryton as well as compositions by other composers, both modern and classical. At the heart of the ensemble is the traditional baryton trio—baryton, viola, and violoncello—for which Haydn wrote 123 works of outstanding beauty during his time as the court composer for the Prince Esterhazy of Austria. With Matthew Baker, one of only a handful baryton performers in the world, the Valencia Baryton Project will present a selection Haydn’s baryton trios from their award-winning debut album with Naxos Records as well as from their upcoming 2nd release. They will combine these classic works with modern compositions that embrace the soundscape and soul of what was in its day considered the most noble of all instruments.
