In honor of April Fools' Day, we're taking a look at the music of the underrated jokester, Joseph Haydn! Haydn's music is sometimes thought of as just light entertainment, but it is truly some of the greatest music ever written. We'll talk this week about humor in music, how it works, and how Haydn synthesized humor, seriousness, and craft in his voluminous body of work. Plus, lots of laughs this week as we take a round through some of Haydn's best musical jokes. Thanks for listening and happy April Fools' Day!
