The Haydn Orchestra, recognised as a concert institution by the Italian Ministry of Tourism, was founded in 1960 by the provincial government and local authorities of Trento and Bolzano. It has played in principal Italian concert venues and has participated in numerous international festivals, including the Haydn Festival in Esterháza, the Bregenz Festspiele, the Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli International Festival in Brescia and Bergamo, the Mozart Festival in Rovereto, the Settimane musicali G. Mahler in Dobbiaco, the Antonio Pedrotti International Competition for Orchestra Conductors in Trento, and the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition in Bolzano.

The orchestra has toured in the United States, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and Hungary, and in 2002 appeared in a critically acclaimed Vienna concert, with the Italian singer Milva, in the legendary Goldener Saal of the Musikverein. In its over forty-year long history, the Haydn Orchestra has performed a vast number of works across all musical genres, ranging from Baroque to contemporary composers.

It has especially focused on an often neglected repertoire, also promoting the rediscovery of precious long-forgotten manuscripts, such as the Dixit Dominus by Domenico Cimarosa, performed for the first time in the modern era at the Thirtieth Festival of Sacred Music, and the Messe solennelle by Hector Berlioz, of which it gave the the first modern-day performance. The orchestra has appeared with many great conductors, among them Claudio Abbado and Riccardo Muti, and collaborated with distinguished soloists.
