little morning music?
Here, a few selections from
Joseph Haydn's "Schöpfung"
(The Creation):

1) Stimmet an die Saiten (Wake the Harp)
2) from Spoleto 1992, Es werde Licht
3) Singt dem Herren alle Stimmen!
(Sing the Lord, ye voices all!)

Did you know that Antonio Salieri
played the keyboard at
the world premiere,
30th of April, 1798,
at Palais Schwarzenberg in Vienna,
with the master, Joseph Haydn,
himself conducting?

  1. I gotta listen to something loud in the morning to get me awake. Some Van Halen maybe.

  2. So beautiful, Merisi! I would love to be there.

  3. How lovely. I've seen Mozart's house, but never Haydn's. I played quite a bit of his music when I was taking lessons years ago.

  4. Wait! Eine kleine is Mozart?
    Did these guys hang out together and share notes (no pun intended)
    Pretty pics though..

  5. Charles Gramlich,
    I need the opposite: calm and quiet.
    In fact, I rarely ever turn on music in the early morning.

    I'd love to get back there, even better would be back in time! :-)

    did you follow the label links? There are more images of Haydn's birthplace.

    Paris Breakfasts:
    Carol, Mozart and Haydn were friends.

  6. Thank you for introducing this piece to me.
    My favorite for morning listenting is Mozart's "Ave Verum Corpus"...

  7. Tash,
    you are welcome, and thank you for "Ave verum corpus"!

    Unfortunately, I could not get the link to work.
    Here is an interpretation performed by the Wiener Sängerknaben: Ave verum Corpus by the Vienna Choir Boys.

  8. Vienna so associated with music in my mind.

    You know England is becoming more like Vienna with coffee houses. People even see to go there to work these days. I am sure we will never catch you up though.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
