Jolly Joseph Haydn

Franz Joseph Haydn was born in Rohrau in 1732 and died in Vienna in 1809. This German composer showed promise at age five, and started music rudiments with a schoolmaster at Hainburg. His first major job, which would turn out to occupy the next thirty years of his life, was in 1761 as Vice-Kapellmeister (later promoted to Kapellmeister) at Eisenstadt. He worked for the Esterházy household.

Haydn expanded many existing genres in his time. He was a highly original composer and exceedingly prolific, having written 104 symphonies, 83 string quartets and 52 piano sonatas (not to mention his cantatas, oratorios, operas, concertos, etc…)

An Amazing Haydn Fact

Isolation agreed with Haydn. With the 1766 Esterházy palace being located in a rather remote location, Haydn came up with new and innovative ways to compose.
