Joseph Haydn was 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 genres. He was also instrumental in the development of the piano trio and in the evolution of sonata form. A life-long resident of Austria, Haydn spent much of his career as a court musician for the wealthy Hungarian aristocratic Esterhazy family on their remote estate. Isolated from other composers and trends in music until the later part of his long life, he was, as he put it, "forced to become original". At the time of his death, he was one of the most celebrated composers in Europe. Joseph Haydn was the brother of Michael Haydn, himself a highly regarded composer, and Johann Evangelist Haydn, a tenor. He was also a close friend of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and a teacher of Ludwig van Beethoven.

"Two variant views of Karajan's Haydn are encompassed in the one word, 'controlled', some would say finely-controlled, others over-controlled...Karajan uses a modern-instrument orchestra but I've no objections on this count: Haydn's last six London Symphonies were conceived on a grand scale, as if to out-Beethoven Beethoven, so they work well with a large orchestra. Nor does Karajan over-drive the music - there's almost as much charm here as from Sir Thomas Beecham - and the recording stands up very well in this transfer." Brian Wilson at Music Web International
