Known today as the "Father of the Symphony," Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was born in Rohrau in the Holy Roman Empire, and was seemingly at the center of the musical world at the time, being both a friend and mentor to Mozart, as well as a teacher to Beethoven. He was instrumental in the development of chamber music and, during the majority of his career, he was the most famous European composer.
