 Franz Joseph Haydn - NPRN Composer of the Month - April 2001
His duties were to provide music for all sorts of events: evening entertainment music, music for the puppet theater, operas for the new theater at Esterháza that opened in 1768, and music for the Prince himself to play (a favored instrument being the baryton: a kind of viol plucked with sympathetic strings).
Third, although Haydn's mastery of musical composition was universally acknowledged in the 18th century, the frank naivetè of this music and its uninhibited aim to entertain the common listener has become distrusted by succeeding generations.
The "sonata form principle" infected the musical structures of the late 18th century even when the music is not "in" sonata form: establishing, departing from, returning to, and confirming the main key of the piece became the basic kind of drama conveyed by the music of this period.

They gave music lessons to talented young people in their own community but also to the Turks, both in the imperial court and in the city.
As the tradition built this peculiar musical ground it caused a curious development which was not quite in anticipation: while the non-Muslim musicians were given the conditions to display their talents on the level of the  central musical culture, hence to realise their artistic identity, they ventured the possibility to exist only in this tradition.
Ottoman music owes the bulk of its written authentic repertoire to three non-Muslim musicians: Ali Ufki (17th c.), a Pole taken captive in war, known as Albert Bobowski in Western sources, Demetrius Cantemir (1773-1723), prince of Moldavia, and Hampartzum Limonciyan (1768-1839), chief musician of the Armenian Church in Istanbul.

 Joseph Haydn
In his early years Haydn chiefly wrote instrumental music, including symphonies and other pieces for the twice-weekly concerts and the prince's Tafelmusik, and works for the instrument played by the prince, the baryton (a kind of viol), for which he composed circa 125 trios in ten years.
Moreover, all music that he produced while employed at this court would become the property of the prince, to such an extent that the composer was forbidden to give away copies of his own compositions to any other person.
In becoming the Esterházy's Kapellmeister (music master), Haydn surrendered any dreams of personal freedom, but in return, received thirty years of job security, as well as the resources, musical and financial, to compose as much music as was humanly possible.

 Luck's Music Library - Featured Composer - Carl Phillipp E Bach
His music did not define an era, like that of his father or that of the master he influenced, Haydn, so much as reveal a deeply personal response to the musical conventions of his time.
In 1768 C.P.E. Bach left Berlin to succeed Telemann as cantor at the Johanneum in Hamburg, also serving as music director for the city's five major churches.
Stylistically distant from his father's polyphony, C.P.E. Bach was a sort of proto-Romantic; he was the master of Empfindsamkeit, or "intimate expressiveness." In chamber music Bach pulled the keyboard out of its subsidiary Baroque role and made it a full partner with, or even the leader of the other instruments.

 Patriotic Music In America, Page 1
While all patriotic and national music is to a greater or less extent popular music, it may be classed apart in that its growth mainly is due to the circumstance of war and is the specific outcome of such conditions.
The repertory of popular music in America is especially rich in patriotic and national songs, in fact so much so that it is hard to fix on any one or even a few of them.
The first incentive to patriotic music was the Revolution, later followed by the War of 1812 and still later by the Civil War, The Spanish American War and the World Wars and regional conflicts of the twentieth century.

Porpora was internationally famous during his lifetime both as a composer (particulary of vocal music and opera) and as a singing teacher.
"Angelica" (of the great librettist Pietro Metastasio) was his first important poem intended for musical setting: one of Porpora's singing pupils, the later much-famed castrato Farinelli, made his dèbut in this same work.
He was in Milan, Naples, Dresden and other cities in Europe: his great period of operatic composition occurred between 1718 and 1742, after which his popularity among theatre audiences declined.

Since no single living person has the vocal range of a castrato (three and a half octaves), the musical team decided to try and work with two voices, a counter-tenor and a soprano, with the objective of digitally fusing them so they would sound like a single voice.

Our Yankee Doodle is said to have its origins when in 1755, New England troops joining Braddock's forces at Niagara appeared wearing a motley assortment of clothing from buckskins and furs to uniforms that were "some quaint old-fashioned military heirloom of a century past".
The tune made good martial music, and in 1768 when British troops arrived in Boston Harbor, Yankee Doodle was said to have been one of the most popular pieces of band music.
There is a country dance to Yankee Doodle, and Captain George Bush wrote it out in his personal notebook of fiddle tune, copied from a now lost fife tutor printed in 1776 in Philadelphia, the first evidence we have for an American printing before 1794.
