The Haydn Barytontrio Budapest was founded by Balázs Kakuk in 1980 with the intention to revive Joseph Haydn's almost 200 compositions for baryton - an original instrument of Hungarian Prince Miklós Esterházy, the Magnificent - in order to perform the pieces in authentic and original instrumentation. The Ensemble plays all baryton trios from Haydn as well as quintets, octets and the baryton divertimenti from other composers of the Esterházy circle.
