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