Welcome to the Keys for Curtis "piano pages." For the campaign, this piano has been named after composer Franz Joseph Haydn, one of the twenty-two composers selected to represent the deep heritage and diversity of classical music. Haydn lived from 1732 to 1809. He was was one of the most prolific and prominent composers of the Classical period. Joseph Haydn is sometimes called the "Father of the Symphony" and "Father of the String Quartet" because of his important contributions to these genres.
