In 1761 Jospeh Haydn became Vice Kapellmeister and later full Kapellmeister to the Esterházy family in Schloss Esterházy. The job was in artistic terms a superb opportunity for Haydn because the Esterházy princes were musical connoisseurs who appreciated his work and gave him daily access to his own small orchestra.

Schloss Esterházy is a palace in Eisenstadt, Austria, the capital of the Burgenland state. It was constructed in the late 13th century, and came under ownership of the Hungarian Esterházy family in 1622. Under Paul I, 1st Prince Esterházy of Galántha the estate was converted into a baroque castle which remained the principal residence and center of administration of the family for over 300 years.
