Joseph Haydn developed his compositional art to captivating perfectionism while retaining, even in mature age, the joy of experimenting and searching for unusual solutions. His consummate Symphony No. 98 fills the perfect form with an overflow of youthful invention. Haydn‘s creative contribution to the symphonic repertoire set a precedent for the creation of the most impres­sive works of this genre, such as Beethoven‘s fa­mous ”Seventh“, which Richard Wagner admiring­ly described as “apotheosis of dance”.
