Early life[ edit ] St. In the foreground is the Kapellhaus demolished where Haydn lived as a chorister. Joseph Haydn was born in RohrauAustriaa village that at that time stood on the border with Hungary.
The 8 groschen came to about 24 cents! Haydn had met Beethoven and examined and heard his music some five months before — in July of — when he passed through Bonn on his way back to Vienna after a triumphant 18 months residency in London.
On November 2 or 3,Beethoven left Bonn for Vienna. In fact, Beethoven would never set foot in Bonn again. Beethoven arrived in Vienna on or about November Having found a place to live, acquired a piano and some furniture, bought some clothes and made some contacts, it was time to pay a call on Haydn.
Alas, Beethoven was not an easy student. For his part, the 60 year-old Josef Haydn was a disinterested teacher at best. So Beethoven secretly hired another teacher, someone named Johann Schenkto correct the assignments, which Beethoven then copied out anew before submitting to Haydn.
Haydn did indeed discover the subterfuge after a year; in December of The letter reads in part: They will, I flatter myself, be graciously accepted by your Reverence as evidence of his diligence in his studies. Beethoven will in time become one of the greatest musical artists in Europe, and I shall be proud to call myself his teacher.
While I am on the subject of Beethoven, may your Reverence permit me to say a few words concerning his financial affairs?
For the past year he was allowed ducats. That this sum was insufficient even for mere living expenses. Your Reverence may have had good reasons for sending him out into the great world with so small a sum. In order to prevent him from falling into the hands of usurers, I have advanced him cash, so that he owes me florins.
I now request that this sum be paid him. Thus I cannot regard it as progress made in Vienna. As far as his stipend is concerned, it does indeed amount to only florins.
But in addition to his salary here of florins has been continuously paid to him; he received florins for the year. I cannot, therefore, very well see why he is as much in arrears as you say. I am wondering, therefore, whether he had not better come back here in order to resume his work.
For I very much doubt that he has made any progress in composition during his stay, and I fear that he will bring back nothing but debts. As we might expect, the lessons with Haydn ended immediately. Joseph Haydn was simply too nice a man to hold a grudge.Piano Recital: Matsuda, Yumiko - HAYDN, J.
