Haydn 50: Spotify Picks is a Spotify playlist with the best music by Haydn.

I really like Haydn more and more. The music is always well-balanced and often with a great sense of humor. Many have wondered how Haydn could learn how to write such beautiful music. He did not have a Haydn as a teacher like Mozart and Beethoven did.

Here are some highlights that I think is worth mention.

The first movement of symphony number 22. A slow constantly evolving dialog between horns, strings and english horn accompanied by a steady and subtle bass line.

Piano sonata number 62especially when performed by Anne Queffélec. It is by many considered his greatest piano sonata.

Adagio from the first cello concerto in C, just because it’s so beautiful.
