Why is Haydn called the “Father of the Symphony?” He was called this because of the number of symphonies that he produced during his career. Another thing that added to him having this title was the fact that under the patronage of the Esterhazy family, Haydn was given the freedom to be able to experiment quite extensively with the medium of the symphony. He didn't invent the symphony, but he might as well have. He wrote hundreds of symphonies in his life during a time when it was still being formed. In many ways he standardized the forms. What was remarkable about Mozart’s childhood? He showed immediate talent and genius right from his youth. He was already composing and performing full scale works by the age of 6. Born into musical family as well as being born with natural genius. He was dedicated and hardworking and wasn't simply a genius. He, himself claimed to be very hardworking and having studied every artist he could.
