One of these people was Baron Carl Josef Fürnberg, who told Count Morzin. Haydn married while being the music directer with Count Morzin. But Count Morzin had some financial problems so Haydn went to work for Prince Paul Anton at his Esterháza palace. Kapellmeister means music directer. Most of his music Haydn wrote was for the Esterházy family and first preformed with their musicians. In 1779 Joseph Haydn could compose music for the public as well, not just the Esterházy family. This greatly increased his popularity. Because of this, Haydn wrote less operas and more string quartets and symphonies. Some other facts are :
