Haydn was born in 1732 in the village of Rohrau near the border with Hungary.
Haydn's parents were perceptive enough to notice that their little son had musical talent, and they also knew that in Rohrau he would have no chance to obtain any serious musical training.
Haydn is credited as the "father" of the classical symphony and string quartet, and also wrote many piano sonatas, piano trios, divertimentos and masses, which became the foundation for the Classical style in these compositional types.

Joseph Haydn was born in 1732 in the Austrian village of Rohrau near the border with Hungary.
Haydn's musical practice formed the basis of much of what was to follow in the development of tonality and musical form.
Haydn's compositional practice was rooted in a study of the modal counterpoint of Fux, and the tonal homophonic styles which had become more and more popular, particularly the work of Gluck and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach.

Haydn had a huge range of responsibilities, including composition, running the orchestra, playing chamber music for and with his patrons, and eventually the mounting of operatic productions.
Haydn was well cared for by his servants, and he received many visitors and public honors during his last years, but they cannot have been very happy years for him.
Haydn's early work dates from a period in which the compositional style of the High Baroque (seen in Bach and Handel's music) had gone out of fashion.

 Haydn and folk music
While a journeyman wheelwright, Mathias Haydn taught himself to play the harp, and according to the oldest biographies of Haydn (written with the help of interviews with the composer), the Haydn family frequently sang together as well as with their neighbors.
This is not because Haydn ever went to Croatia to learn this music; rather, he heard it from people living in Croatian ethnic enclaves, found in the eastern part of Austria near the border with Hungary.
The "Haydn as Croatian" theory was originated by a Croatian ethnologist named Franjo Kuhač, and was propagated (for instance, in various editions of the prestigious Grove Dictionary) by the musicologist Henry Hadow.

 Franz Josef Haydn
Josef Haydn was born on March 31, 1732, to a musical family * living in modest circumstances in Rohrau, Austria, a rural community where Slavonic folk music was certainly to be heard.
Haydn was sent at the age of eight to Vienna to become a choirboy at Saint Stephen's Cathedral; this beginning of his musical education was predominantly Austrian and urban.
Haydn's gravestone is at its original place, today called Haydn Park in the 12th district of Vienna; there is a memorial in the house where he died in the 6th district of Vienna and a Haydn Museum in the house where he lived in Eisenstadt.

 Mozart and Haydn: More Alike than Different   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-15)
Haydn is undeniably recognized as one of the most creative and resourceful composers in history, yet he continues to be overshadowed by Mozart.
Joseph Haydn’s father, Mathias Haydn, was a wheelwright in the Lower Austrian village of Rohrau and, prior to their marriage, his mother, Anna-Maria, had been a cook for a local lord.
Haydn’s parents recognized the musical potential in their son and desired to provide a proper education for young Franz Joseph, but their meager means were far insufficient.

This movement throughout the music of Haydn will be the most stable and resistant to influence due to its very origin and nature.

The folk music that seems to loom largest in Haydn's work is that of the Croatians,in the language composer understood and spoke.
The village of Rohrau in which Haydn lived for his first six years was apparently a Croatian ethnic enclave, and Croatian is still spoken in the area today.
The most cautious verdict on this subject, then, would be that the ethnic background of Joseph Haydn is simply not known what in terms of common sense is very odd if not unique case.

 Essentials of Music - Composers
Haydn is often referred to as "Papa" Haydn, and there is some justification for this.
Here Haydn helped transform the genre from little more than a string divertimento (with the emphasis on the top voice) to a type of chamber music in which all parts play an equal role.
Haydn's style is detectable in the early music of Beethoven as well.

 Essentials of Music - Composers
The folk music of Hungary was central to the music of Béla Bartók.
He was not the first composer to make use of this music (we can see it as far back as Haydn), but he was one of the first to take it at face value, and to exploit its idiosyncrasies.
The melodies of these folk tunes, removed from the traditional major/minor tonality of Western music, provided new melodic and harmonic resources, and the powerful and often asymmetrical rhythms (often freely mixing groupings of twos and threes) became a hallmark of Bartók's rhythmic style.
