    Well at least Leopold composed that wackily effervescent Toy Symphony, to his credit.
    The difference between knowledge and opinion is vast.

    A Sixth Form common room somewhere in England 1980...


    'The Wall is **** - Wish You Were Here Rules!'

    'Yeah? This is 1980, and Pink Floyd are trying to be relevant for NOW - you can't have long hair and wear flares for ever!'

    'Well, I do and I will, so **** off!'

    Etc. etc....

    Strange how these snobbish playground hierarchies spill over, isn't it?
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    That's quite true, but the Joseph Haydn and Michael Haydn snobs have been claiming credit for that symphony for years.

    As great as the Toy Symphony symphony might be, I don't think we can call it Leopold's greatest creation. There's the Sinfonia da Caccia, Musical Sleigh Ride, Peasant Wedding (with parts for bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, and a pistol), and Nannerl of course. I might be forgetting some of Leopold's other creations.
