One of my favorite Haydn piano sonatas, this Adagio is in the rather rare, for its time, key of D-flat.

He must have been a delightful man because his music is so happy! Happy Birthday Papa Haydn.

He once said that he served his Lord with a smile.

As an ignorant lad, I said to my teacher that Haydn wrote too many symphonies. He just said 'well, that could be like a colour-blind person going to an art exhibit and saying the paintings all looked the same colour'.

I've never forgotten that. BIG put-down, and well deserved.

These days, if I love the more 'public' of Haydn's music -especially the masses- his string quartets offer a unique view into his innermost soul. Charles Rosen had that right.

I still think he wrote too many symphonies (and too many piano sonatas....) grin.

His 'Nelson' Mass was the first choral music I learnt when I joined my school choir, and it's still one of my favourite choral works. It's not often he's not in a sunny mood - maybe that's why I like it so much.

Heresy, and on the most important day of the Christian year! laugh

None of his piano sonatas sound anything alike, nor do the symphonies.

Me too, I LOVE the 'Nelson', on the level of the choral works of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Verdi, Elgar.

Happy birthday to an oft-unjustly maligned composer! I learned a piece of his as a child--one of his easier sonatas, can't even remember which one--and wrote him off as boring and uninteresting. But now I'm working my way through his Sonata in E-flat, No. 27 and realizing how wrong I was. An expression of pure joy and happiness.

Doffing the cap to Papa Haydn is like sentimentally polishing the bones of a dinosaur.

Sorry about that chaps ... time to move on.

In addition to Beethoven being specially indebted to Haydn's influence, Prokofiev also cited Haydn as one of his heroes, because of Haydn's deep sense of craft and unfailing wit. A happy birthday indeed, to a somewhat underrated master.
