About this playlist
Ever the inventor, Haydn messed about with all sorts of formats you might not know about. Did you know that he wrote a whole series of works for the "Flötenuhrstücke" or "flute-clock" – a kind of mechanical organ? Or that he wrote 15 operas, many of which are hardly performed, even today? And that's before we even get into the lesser known of his 104 (!) symphonies. You're in for a treat with this one.
