~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
:bulletpink: Fun ;) and eerie :fuzzydemon: ANECDOTES:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

;) Jo Haydn and Wolf Mozart had TWIN pianos.

;) Bursting a bubble: the way I heard it growing up: www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/le…

;) Somehow, Jo got credited with 240 + symphonies. Of which he ''only'' wrote about 106.

;) Michael Haydn DETESTED plagiarism; as a young boy he founded society which detected nicking of themes, melodies & music by other composers - he demanded Original Creativity = a trademark throughout his life. The ONE article that explores possibility of Haydn recanting, is: www.biu.ac.il/hu/mu/min-ad/06-…
~ And, when push comes to shove =P I found J. A. Hasse's Requiem from 1763, second 1 minute long bit. Short, but essentially the same - Michael's Req-in-C sequence. Gotcha!

:fuzzydemon: TWO in one go - pardon - grave: Maria Anna (Marianne, Nannerl) Mozart and Mike Haydn share the SAME *six-feet-under*: www.haydn.dk/images2/stpeter7.… which may imply they were musical colleagues and equals. Due to a fellow who wanted to study the ''musical bump'' on Jo's head, mausoleum now holds TWO skulls: his & ''fake'' news.google.com/newspapers?nid…. Curiously, Mike too got parted with his head; deeply grieving widow asked for permission to nick & clean it: she then kept her husband's skull right at her side - on the night stand (it was put in the urn on top of the monument erected in his memory - now it's under lock and key in a safe), while his :heart: heart is kept separately in a shrine in St. Peter's Churchyard Cemetery in Salzburg. He was much loved and, despite ''excessive wine (and beer and ...) episodes and a musical style that was never far from a tavern or a dance hall'' (really, a waltz in a mass?!! - COOL!) - RESPECTED (so that's why his bits are scattered all over the place! Must be a good luck charm.)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
:bulletpink: Did-You-Know's:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

- That around 1780, newly written Church edict demanded that the church music should be from then on composed in entirely simple manner (no fugues, no huge orchestra, ah, life of a Kapellmeister had to suck big time ... *snores*)

While tipsy Michael, admired & frequently copied :squee: by Mozart,

retained his dignity & cool with awesome FUGUES and major SACRAL works,

frisky Joseph, true to the Form, Logic and Balance -

wrote jolly gorgeous! concertos for *HURDY-GURDY* =P

and Operas for Prince Nikolaus' *PUPPET* theatre.

* ... Cricket sound ... * :lol: :bulletgreen: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrewTu… :iconkermityayplz:
(... Here's a hint: if it sounds ridiculous:icontrollfaceplz:- it probably is;

Jo's frequently using irony; making ACID jokes and poking fun out of his audience; after all,

writing music-to-order can be rather depressing, especially in a mosquito ridden swamp

combined with shortage of desirable women. Oh, the tragedy. :nuu:)

:iconviolinplz::iconwineplz::iconflyingheartsplz:

While Mikey was pretty much dignified, stuck in his own demanding stylish branch,

after all - he had to live up to the ultra-prominent position of Konzertmeister (etc.) in Salzburg -

mostly autodidactic Jo had a bit of a bug up his aR$€ during the creative period

and looked everywhere (chiefly in himself) for new expressions in music -

seriously: stuck in a bog, :hexentanz: bored out of his mind :snowing: - was bound to invent Classicism. :music:

Q: What about Sammartini?!!
A: ... OK - it was a joined effort ;)

Today, in observance of Easter Sunday, I am listening to the Nelsonmesse and The Seven Last Words of Our Savior On The Cross. 'tis my small effort to ask forgiveness for the disrespect shown to Our Lord in this God-forsaken country during the last six years.:( (Sad) :( (Sad) :( (Sad) :( (Sad) :( (Sad)

Hope you found peace. :rose:

... However :) should you feel quite frisky and fresh and be interested in a little background to the music of Seven Last Words:

books.google.si/books?id=Kx4Uk…

www.raco.cat/index.php/recerca…

and itis.volta.alessandria.it/epis…

Considering the mess regarding authorships especially 18th century works are currently in, comments above are at the very least plausible - or at least equally believable as their counterparts for which we too have no particular evidence (hence much of what is accepted and what we think we know ~ is really based on pure belief). In the past 70 years or so has Joseph's opus shrunken from 1200 to 800 works and is getting more and more tiny every time a true author of this or that *arrangement* pops up. But, as Playel's lawsuit against Haydn's plagiarism shows - these were the practices of at least 18th century, just like today. (Oh, and a fourth composer in some Germanic town dabbled in the composition and made an adaptation of this very musical piece which J. Haydn heard on his way from England and approved of, many copies, many versions, viva la libertà.)

Music is still the same as we know it ... :heart:

What is your take on Prince Nicolaus the Magnificent?
He obviously admired FJH, but he was a demanding boss. One funny story about the Farewell Symphony says that the reason why H chose to present his request for his men to return to their homes in a musical way was that Prince E was so polite and dignified that he made people who complained to him feel like boorish jerks.

Ahaha! OK, no matter how many times one hears the story - one thing's for sure: Haydn was bold - and clever! And you can't deny that throughout history - music has been used to send messages, to make people think - but also to make us smile and laugh (just as much as to, to whomever applicable - cry in agony and angst.)

Now, about the prince:

when Nikolaus took over and popped it into his head that the swamp residence would be the next Perfect Thing for him and royal visitors - with which he could impress a certain Empress and gain next firm foothold into Croatian Banovina and whatnot political goals (Nick was VERY ambitious, hence maybe the use of Croat folk tunes in Haydn's music and travels to Dubrovnik or wherever) - the estate was a little more than a (41 rooms huge) hunting lodge.

Before *The Great Move* they lived somewhere sensible and near Vienna, Eisenstadt and whatnot - Nikolaus now also invested heavily into renovation and expansion and other (for some reason Chinese or Japanese) luxury - including building from scratch a relatively fine swamp opera house clad in oxen blood (no idea why) - and if you go through the costumes and musicians expenses and so on - it will become increasingly clear to you that

this elaborate little plaything costed money. HEAPS of money.

So, trying to think where best grab the cash, Nick even took the lengths of ensuring Nick's own legal rights of copy over Haydn's compositions. And, since Esterháza ordered music from all over and Haydn dutifully *arranged* it, those rights are muddy at best, since heaps of Haydn's works - we now know and hear - were written by other composers (this phenomenon does usually not go in the reverse, that any other composer would think of massively stealing Haydn's work or works of others. Also, Haydn has been dragged to court by Pleyel - who lost and, in boorish revenge streak - added, Ha-ha!, Haydn's quartet in a set of his own, so there. :picknose:)

Now. To make program interesting, Haydn was the chap, apparently he complained little (but always justifiably), had a way with the staff (in more ways than one) and was just generally managing to keep things in check (apart from a minor injury, one's plucked eye caused by a quick and heavy fist of the other.) But anyway. Order, discipline and care - Haydn and some other guy took it to the Prince that the right way to Empress [stomach = lurve] was the combination of music, food and fun. Present yourself as an artistic, rich and amusing ally. Go get her, boy!

When Maria Theresa said that ''if she wanted to hear a good opera'' she hops off to Esterháza - everybody seem to think that this means Haydn's own operas. It does not. Under Haydn's production 1200 operas were produced (even Salieri's) in 15 years

(80 operas per year, 7 operas per month = 1 every 5.6 days -

oh come on, he had to have help and to be able to compose anything - at this jobbing rate - is near fiction.)

So here's the rub: Maria Theresa meant ANY slightly private operatic production, NOT just Haydn's operas -

money spent ( = Nikolaus) + food & games (socialising) + :cd: music (Haydn's Orchestra)

the Enlightened Empress sure enjoyed herself immensely!

Now, you have to give it to, as per Joseph II's observation, *humble and warm* Nick, it was a good plan. But he was taken a bit for a fool - and those political alliances did not come to fruition, which might have later also added the fuel to the rebellion of Hungarian nobility against Joseph II and so on ...

But these political things as well as scepticism ~ you'll NEVER hear in official Haydn biography.
:shakefish: As for Haydn's relationship with authority: while Nikolaus brought Esterháza to the knees with his debt and spending, as well as pensions of aged musicians and a medical plan for the village, not to mention he single-handedly rebuilt Haydn's house in Eisenstadt when it burned down thus ensuring Haydn's loyalty (or paying him off, maybe Haydn knew something, LoL) - the next in succession, The Nick II, naturally had to tighten the budget - which meant cuttings everywhere and plenty short temper to go around. As soon as he became celebrated Doctor of Music and pretty much got all (masonic) industry behind him - mostly due to the plans Nikolaus No. 1 had for him and his estate - Haydn stood up to next patriarch of Esterháza who, on one incident, yelled at him and treated him as an idiot slave - and the odd thing is that - the prince

ended up the one being embarrassed
and never yelled at Haydn again.

So, Haydn a boorish jerk? :finger:
In this intricate tapestry of intrigues ~ he managed the humour all right :hooray: and thank goodness Prince Charming had ears for his people ...
