The musical brothers Haydn were no strangers to sibling rivalry. Joseph traveled in fancy musical circles in Esterházy; Michael set up shop in Salzburg where he became friendly with the Mozart family. Decide for yourself who was better as Dame Jane Glover leads a celebration of each man’s unique artistry. Featured works include Michael Haydn’s Symphony No. 26 — until 1907, believed to be by Mozart — and Joseph Haydn’s Creation Mass, declared by one of his contemporaries, “the greatest work of a very great man.”
