Inside the Classics: Hipster vs. Nerd

MOZART
Symphony No. 35, Haffner

HAYDN
Symphony No. 101, The Clock

Want to learn more about classical music? Here’s a fun introduction to two of its giants. Mozart, the hipster: young, wickedly irreverent, amazingly gifted, impatient for the world to recognize his genius—you’ll hear it in the breathless rush of his Haffner Symphony. Haydn was his mentor, the granddaddy of composers, who worked the orchestra like a watchmaker crafts beautifully intricate gears with precision. Without these two greats, classical music wouldn’t be...classic!
