Joseph Haydn (1732 – 1809) spent almost twenty years of his life in Vienna. Here, he started his musical career as a choir boy at St. Stephen’s Cathedral (in which he also got married); here, he established himself as an artist; and here, he returned after his work for the Esterházy family. In Vienna, he created such masterpieces as “The Creation” and the Imperial Anthem and enjoyed his world renown; here, he died in his old age and found his first resting place – Joseph Haydn, the most famous composer of his time.
