Proper nounEdit

Haydn (plural Haydns)

  1. A surname, from German; (music) used specifically of Franz Joseph Haydn (1732–1809), an Austrian composer of the Classical period.
    • 2014 April 18, Ruth Padel, “How to do justice to Christ's Last Words”, in The Guardian:
      Two years ago I rashly accepted a commission from Tring Chamber Music and Paul Barritt, leader of the Hallé orchestra, to write poems to read between movements of Haydn's quartet Opus 51, which meditates on Christ's "Seven Last Words". Haydn, commissioned in 1785 by Cádiz cathedral, wrote this music to go between words so it's hard to perform and listen to without some.
