Welcome to the 'new world' where culture is back to the stone age. Now out of the landfill. I believe that this ' 103 ' was Hayden's last . the drum roll is a most fitting title.

Good heavens--to all those who (bitterly?) complained there wasn't a bio: It is so easy to look this up by yourself--wo u l d take less energy than scolding Pandora. Thank you, Pandora, for providing a wonderful site.
Still lagging on this bio after a couple of years. Shame on you Pandora. Haydn was so important, & such an influence. Why no bio?
His student was Beethoven!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! How cool is that???????? ?
I LOVE HAYDN! even without the bio.My some gave me 2 Bose speakers for Christmas and Pandora. I'm in heaven.
Hmm sometimes
Some things, stand on their own. Who needs an explanation? They, who has not, or could not, hear for themselves, that, which is self evident..... . . . . . just saying, no offense intended.... . . . . proofs in the pudding
hogantucson
Also looking for the bio......
hcvasconez
Yes where is the bio? Outsourcing. . . ? In these cyber days maybe check with Wiki-DORA..@ ; at least the music is still good.
He is my favorite of ALL composers... . . . .
Thank you you both (since there's no formal bio) Jennifer and Richard for your info...

Haydn is remembered as the first great symphonist and the composer who essentially invented the string quartet. The principal engineer of the classical style, Haydn exerted influence on the likes of Mozart, his student Ludwig van Beethoven and scores of others.
where is the rest of the bio?
wildwood576
How come no more bio info?
Love Haydn, no matter what mood I'm in, I'm always in the mood for Haydn.
Well, born Austrian I'd say; grew up speaking German.
Papa Haydn

Franz Joseph Haydn Born German: 31 March 1732 – 31 May 1809), known as Joseph Haydn, was an Austrian composer, one of the most prolific and prominent of the Classical period He is often called the Father of the Symphony and Father of the String Quartet because of his important contribution s to these forms. He was also instrumental in the development of the piano trio and in the evolution of sonata form.
Hyndn is a great composer period. You could'nt give me free tickets
to see the idiots they call artist now.
Hello Pandora - anybody home?? I expected to read just a little if nothing else about the great Hayden and he's great gifts as a composer. Make all us listeners happy, Pandora, at least give it a try!
coachcosgrov e
what gives Pandora? PAN his bio? We a'DORA this composer. Get it right please PANDORA!
still no bio.I complained to Pandora about this a year ago.They said they outsource the bios.poor quality control.
The music is not only beautiful, but very serene. Mdoerr
My absolute favorite of all
leave Haydn alone. He is great. How many of you can play the piano like him!!!!!!!!! ! !
So let's go ahead and fill in his bio. Haydn was a scientific dude and a bug expert. His music was celebrated even in his own day but later he was considered old by people like Beethoven who came to see him for awhile and maybe learn something. Ludwig instead blew away the thought of Haydn and the Classical Era for the next 300 years.
Don't read this because it could be your a**. You a** works and you could get your a** kissed or kicked, depending on the day you reply to this message. Good luck. And don't be like Haydn and have no bio going on.
papa Haydn not famous enough for a bio
The bio of Franz Josef hidin'.
Did he died?
Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the the best day of your life. However if you do not post this comment on at least 3 different songs you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually works

When Haydn was a young boy he was singing in the Vienna boys choir! German: Wiener Saenger Knaben. His uncle introduced him to the choir because he was a very good singer.
It's not waste to look him up...
obravo9
I , too, would like the Bio...don't like to waste time researching elsewhere.
Hey Pandora, HELLO! ANYBODY HOME? This kind of thing happens way too often for me to be paying for this app. It would be understandab l e if these omissions occurred once in a blue moon, but that's not the case. There are all kinds of errors here, not only omissions: the wrong bios appear, dates, places, and names are wrong. Hire someone competent, will you?
I'd like to see the Bio. Please.
Please, where is the Bio?????
I'll ad my voice to the chorus: Bio Please.

Pandora should not be farming out something to some service that is not up to its otherwise great level. it lowers its overall product, the old weakest link adage. Come on homes. Get your bios together. Paul of Alameda
Oddly, the image is of a seven-disc set of Benjamin Britten's works, conducted by Britten himself.
Not important enough to need a bio obviously. That space is needed for bios of Beyonce and Lady Gaga, who are more important. I mean, who is Haydn anyway? I never saw him on tv.
Nice one Stoncold and thanks Seawild

Here's bio.. http://en.wi k i p e d i a . o r g / w i k i / J o s e p h _ H a y d n

Life was not easy for Haydn, who later remembered being frequently hungry as well as constantly humiliated by the filthy state of his clothing.
moon190
yes, classical music rocks, perhaps the hardest.

Hey, jdstoncold, that was a romantic life. You're gifted!
jdstoncold
After studying classical music from the age of 6, Hayden went on to form the first death metal band. After a freak harpsicord accident, Franz Joseph sought solace in alcohol, first fine French Brandies, but ultimately spiralling down to cheap Chiantis and asti spumanti. Spending several years trying to achieve sobriety and two seasons on Celebrity Rehab live from Versaille, he settled down to write his most memorable works, including Microsoft's theme music.
