Franz Joseph Haydn

Father of the Symphony

Franz Joseph Haydn never had any children, but the musicians who worked for him liked him so much they called him Papa Haydn. And Haydn is also known as the “Father of the Symphony.” He wasn’t the first person to compose symphonies, but he did help the symphony to grow up as a musical form.
