Father of the symphony known for his great humor, Haydn lived through the German literary movement Sturm und Drang, as evidenced by his 1770 symphony no. 45, the "Farwell." Wide harmonic expansion, intense dynamic changes and rhythmic complexity foreshadow Beethoven. The "Surprise" symphony, 94, written to make the ladies scream, shows Haydn's other side.
