Classical Music

ORIGINTurkic and Mongolian horsemen from Inner Asia were probably the world’s earliest fiddlers. Their two-stringed upright fiddles were strung with horsehair strings, played with horsehair bows, and often feature a carved horse’s head at the end of the neck. The violins, violas, and cellos we play today, and whose bows are still strung with horsehair, are a legacy of the nomads.

Joseph Haydn

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. He wrote in every major genre, including symphony, opera, the solo concerto, chamber music including string quartet and string quintet, and the piano sonata. His works include the Violin Concertos no.1-5, the Magic Flute: Overture, etc.

The Magic Flute: Overture

Haydn was an Austrian composer. He is often called the "Father of the Symphony" and "Father of the String Quartet" because of his important contributions to these forms. Haydn spent much of his career as a court musician for the wealthy Esterházy 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". His most famous work would be Symphony No. 94 in G major, The Surprise.
