    I know this is a bit early but I am not always to get on the forum as often as I like.

    Anyway, on Saturday, March 31st, think of Franz Joeph Haydn and wish him a very happy birthday!!!!

    :D :D :D :D :D :D

    It's ashamed that he is not that popular around here. To play Haydn successfully requires skills uncommon for most people. That is just my opinion. Haydn is like Mozart + Bach + Clementi. However, some of his stuff is just b-o-r-i-n-g! (namely his symphonies).

    Heehee sorry you feel that way. I love a lot of his symphonies. I did a lot of study on Haydn's symphonies as an undergrad as well as his sonatas (analysis). Haydn is more monothematic than Mozart which might make him more challanging to listen to since he doesn't have as much contrast as Mozart.

    I personally like the Farewell, the philosopher, the clock, and surprise sympnonies best. I also like his 77th and 88th too.
