    Haydn's 2nd Op.76 quartet, in d minor, is known as the "Quinten" ("Fifths") due its distinctive, bold opening motif of falling fifths (did Haydn really model it on the distinctive peal of Big Ben, as some have suggested?) and the movement ends in a dazzling coda. Accompanied by lovely pizzicato...

    Moving on from the question of authenticity (Haydn wrote it, get over it) it's clear that many quartets have found the original score of the 7LWs didn't work so well. They realised that important details/markings had been missed and with this in mind, many ensembles have created their own...

    Recommended Buchberger Lindsays Angeles Kodaly Amati Auryn London Haydn Aeolian Nomos Very highly recommended Leipziger - usually the Auryn's would be here but the Leipzigers play even better than the Auryn's throughout and are much better in the first movement, similarly broad in some...

    Catching up on an old thread here's my round-up of Haydn op.20 no. 3 recordings. Some familiar names in here from my op.20 no. 5 round-up. Here's a Youtube performance from the Pacific Quartet of Vienna (one of the few full live recordings I could find online). Very Good Salomon Vegh...

    I have this sample of Haydn - Rondo all'Ongarese: presto It is played more slowly than this one of Goldstone: How could I find a similarly slower performance of this piece of music played on pure piano (no strings of the usual trio)? What is the appropriate musical term to use for search...

    Hello everybody! Here I wanted to share a great and very accurate analysis of the Haydn Sonata in C major (Hob XVI-7 Divertimento). Haydn always surprises me! I really admire all the resources he does in his pieces and I think is a great model to follow. I found it very interesting and...

    Hello! Today I share with you this very well-written analysis of the Haydn Sonata in Am major (Hob XVI):5- Divertimento. The analysis is divided into three movements, explaining each of them wholly and precisely, focussing on all the essential things: the structure, technique and harmony...

    Hello - just signed up and glad to be here. I'm currently trying to get my head around Haydn's "7 Last Words from the Cross" which I have available in orchestral, quartet and piano versions. I wonder if anyone can recommend an analysis the music (NB I'm a music enthusiast although not a...

    EDIT: I tried to get the YouTube videos to playback from the Kyrie and String Quartet fourth movement, respectively, but I couldn't figure it out. The Kyrie movement begins at 5:28 in the first video, and the fourth movement of the String Quartet begins at 21:36. So this morning I went for a...

    There was a series of great threads, discussing and taking votes on Haydn's symphonies, ten at a time, curated by Ramako. I loved checking back on these as I made my way through the Fischer box. But now they've gone - or at least, I can't find them by searching 'Haydn symphony'. Do threads just...

    So obviously Haydn is most famous for his contributions to the development of the Symphony and String Quartet genres. But what would you say is his most underappreciated genre of works? I'm sure I missed some in the polls, but if you think it's something else then select other and share what it...

    Exactly 225 years ago today, audiences heard the first performance of Haydn's Symphony #94, the "Surprise" symphony. Already the first composer to become famous all across Europe during his lifetime, Haydn might have been surprised himself to find that, 225 years later, it's that one loud chord...

    My birthday's coming up and I think I'll ask for a set of Haydn symphonies in the HIP school. Can anyone recommend the sets by Bruggen, Pinnock, Weil or other? (whether London, Paris or 'Sturm und Drang' is not so much of an issue as I like them all). Specifically, I'd like a set with plenty of...

    For me it's an open question, but I phrased it as an over-the-top declarative statement here in hopes of garnering counterexamples by motivated argumentative TC posters. I've been looking for the counterexamples among Haydn's contemporaries and early influences (J. Stamitz, C.P.E. Bach...

  20. Classical Music Discussion
    I have always been interested in discovering when/how a specific composer was greatly influenced by one or more composers of the past, not onfly in terms of a direct relationship - i.e. a pupil/teacher one, a close friendship, etc. - but also in all those cases where the music of the son seems a...
