Haydn is traditionally considered the father of the symphony and string quartet, and he did write the first well-known works in those genres.
Besides the symphony and string quartet, Haydn also pioneered the development of sonata form, and was innovative in his writing of keyboard sonatas, which are perhaps the first piano sonatas[?], though some may have been written for harpsichord or fortepiano[?].
HAYDN, FRANZ JOSEPH (1732?1809), Austrian composer, was born on the 31st of March 1732 at Rohrau (Trstnik), a village on the borders of Lower Austria and Hungary.

Audiences flocked to Haydn's concerts, and he quickly achieved wealth and fame: one review called him "incomparable." Musically, the visits to England generated some of Haydn's best-known work, including the Surprise, Military, London symphonies, the Rider quartet, and the Gypsy Rondo piano trio.
Bach in the field of the keyboard sonata (the harpsichord and clavichord were equally popular with the piano in this era) and J.C. Bach and Leopold Mozart in the symphony, Haydn was undoubtedly the strongest overall influence on musical style in this era.
During this period the written music was structured by tonality, and the sections of a work of the Classical era were marked by tonal cadences.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Franz Joseph Haydn
The year 1756 found Haydn so well informed in the various branches of his art that he began to be ranked among the first music-masters of Vienna.
In the field of vocal writing Haydn was not notably successful; his solos are not on the same level as his other works, but his three and four part songs are generally accorded the same high appreciation given to his more pretentious efforts.
The works which have made Haydn's name immortal are his oratorios, not so much because of their intrinsic merit musically, but because of the appeal they have made to popular taste.
