Haydn composed more than 100 symphonies that represent the base of classical symphonic writing, earning him the nickname ‘Father of the Symphony‘. He experimented with the symphony’s expressive potential and developed a uniquely masterful and delightful style that strongly influenced his successors. Their lucidity, wit and artistic variety still delight listeners today. All of Haydn‘s most famous symphonies are included here. Celebrate The Haydn Anniversary Year with these influential classics.
