Franz Joseph Haydn (31 March[1] 1732 – 31 May 1809 was an Austrian composer, one of the most prolific and prominent composers of the Classical period. He is often called the "Father of the Symphony" and "Father of the String Quartet" because of his important contributions to these forms. He was also instrumental in the development of the piano trio and in the evolution of sonata form. I hope you enjoyed the surprise symphony!

As for the instrument I considered the harmonica first but then the harp has more class and found this interpretation of a medieval english dance, pretty interesting!



I wonder if the symphony was called "Surprise" because you almost jump out of your skin when the brass starts to play? :) LOL I liked it very much.

As I listened to the harp, I imagined people dancing a little dance in the parlor as she played. Very lively!

A friend of mine plays the harp and I find it completely mesmerising! Happy Monday :)

Good morning at the start of another week! I agree with Belle - that brass was a real "Surprise"!! I do love to listen to harp music I must admit. It is just so relaxing.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
