Much of Franz Joseph Haydn's long career was in service as a court musician to the wealthy Esterházy family. It was early in Haydn's time at the Esterháza palace that Prince Nicolaus took a liking to the hypnotic sound of the baryton - a bowed instrument with an extra set of strings that vibrate sympathetically or are plucked for tonal contrast. The baryton was considered the pinnacle of 18th-century aristocratic instruments, and the outstanding beauty of Haydn's trios represent its final renaissance, placing this remarkable antique firmly into the poised and tasteful Classical style of the day.
