    Einer der ganz Großen! Schrieb doch Waldstein in Beethovens Stammbuch: ...erhalten Sie: Mozart’s Geist aus Haydens Händen.

    @Ohr16. First, a great majority of classical recordings, for their title, only list the composer's last name so it would mostly just be "Haydn". Second, it's "Franz Joseph Haydn" not "Franz Josef Haydn"....not even Last.fm spells it this way. Perhaps you should check your own spelling before criticizing others. Third, I have DG recordings where it is spelled as "Franz Joseph Haydn" while others just say "Joseph Haydn". Which spelling you think is correct is a matter of preference, neither of them is wrong per se. If you don't like it, disable auto correct and scrobble it as "Joseph Haydn".....and please NOT "Jozef Haydn", like you seem to suggest,...that for sure IS wrong.

    he wrote so much music that it is hard to take him all in. [2] the ones who took him all in are the winners.

    "Franz" Josef Haydn is just ridiculous. He never called himself like this & from all the many albums I own of him, not on one he is called "Franz" Josef Haydn. - Just last.fm insists on it!

    the recordings of his music on Harmonia Mundi are absolutely amazing. HM is quickly becoming my favorite label for classical music.

    He never reminds me of Vivaldi... for me he is closer to Beethoven than to the earlier composers. That might be because his music is firmly Classical, with many new forms and ideas, in a way unrecognisable from the Baroque era music. I think he has an architectural thought in his music which is unprecedented, and it inspired the genius of Beethoven no end.

    I think Haydn is undervalued for these reasons: 1) he has an unique sense of humor which is suspect among a lot of very serious classical music listeners 2) he wrote so much music that it is hard to take him all in.

    Why can't I scrobble him properly? Event though I listed to twelve track last.fm logs only two.

    "I don't know why, but he always reminds me of Vivaldi." Now I know why, according to this site he was influenced by Vivaldi's concertos.

    The symphonies are good but a bit overrated, it's all about the Creation and the string quartets for me. The 'Representation of Chaos' in the Creation is fantastic, as are the tone poem portrayals of the creation of eagles, whales, etc.

    «В этом мире так мало радостных и довольных людей», — писал семидесятилетний композитор, — «везде их преследуют горе и заботы; быть может, твой труд послужит подчас источником, из которого полный забот и обремененный делами человек будет черпать минутами свое спокойствие и отдых».

    I decided today to start listening to Haydn only to learn he composed over 100 Symphonies...I mean, Christ, where am I even supposed to begin with that kind of number?
