Wednesday’s Choice

We all have perceptions of a particular composer’s sound. The more I listen to Haydn the more I understand he has many voices, and like that line in the New Testatment says, none are without meaning.

This symphony written between 1771-1772 has been called the grandfather of the 5th, which Beethoven began working on some 30 years later.

  2. Inspiring piece….I love all the variations going on within. Masterful. Many voices indeed. Just like life has many voices, changes in tempo, mood, volume if we are listening.
