Biography

Joseph Haydn, the master of classicism

Joseph Haydn started out as a child with a miraculous voice. It was said that he nearly suffered the fate of the castrati at his choir school. His gifts and encounter with the great Porpora brought him into the employment of the rich Esterhazy family in 1761. The capricious, music-amateur prince then dominated his existence ordering an incredible amount of works. The prolific composer produced symphonies, operas, chamber music, sonatas and more.
