Abstract

Although over 200 years old, much of the music that was produced during the Classical Era is still widely listened to, and continues to have a profound impact on our music today. Classical music is notable for its clear and elegant texture, and its playful use of contrast and variety in melody, rhythm, keys, and dynamics. One of the masters of this form of music was a man named Franz Joseph Haydn. Nicknamed “Papa Haydn” and “Father of the Symphony”, Haydn truly was a master of his craft, composing over 100 symphonies, 83 string quartets, 26 operas, 62 piano sonatas, 45 trios, and numerous others. This presentation of his Sonata in e minor is an illustration of the elegance of the Classical Era as well as the whimsical nature of the composer himself.
