Haydn:

Symphony No. 45 "Farewell", 1st Movement.

I love Bach's Art of Fugue, especially his unfinished Contrapunctus XIV.

Very Cool! Bach's a fantastic composer and seems pretty rad in general, tuning organs and making light of death in its impact on his paycheck. I even heard he'd improvise at his favorite coffee shop just for the coffee. Haydn I should hear more of.

Yes, Café Zimmerman in Leipzig. It was a collegium musicum founded by Telemann, who was also performing in coffee houses during his time.

I knew it was Haydn's birthday but not Bach's. Happy birthday to both!
