Friday, March 30, 2018 at 7 p.m.
Alison Barr and Janna Bruene present on the life and music of Franz Joseph Haydn.
FRANZ JOSEPH HAYDN (1732-1809) was a central figure in the growth and development of the mature Classical style, in particular the forms of the symphony, sonata, and string quartet. Known as “Papa” Haydn, he was mentor to Mozart, teacher of Beethoven, and, during his lifetime, was considered Europe’s most famous composer. His music is filled with delight and depth of spirit, inventiveness, unpredictability, and humor.
