Joseph Haydn

Joseph Haydn
Born: 1732
Died: 1809

Haydn was among the most prolific of all great composers and he wrote in every form: 104 symphonies, nearly 90 string quartets, 62 piano sonatas, dozens of concertos, oratorios, masses and choral works, 23 operas, many songs and a huge amount of chamber music. His variety, unpredictability, wit, quality of invention and genius for musical construction put him head and shoulders above his contemporaries.
