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