You have reached the Wikipedia User page of Opus33, editing here since 2003.

Right now, I am taking an extended wiki-break, hoping to expand my non-internet horizons.

I work on classical music articles, focusing on Haydn and Mozart, with occasional forays into Sacred Harp music and also historical keyboard instruments like harpsichords and fortepianos. My Wiki-goals are:

  • Accuracy, with everything taken from a peer-reviewed, properly cited reference source.
  • Clear organization, with important material up front and trivia included either in less prominent places or not at all.

Charles Rosen described the Opus 33 string quartets (1781) as a turning point in the career of Joseph Haydn and in classical music generally. This is one of my favorite passages from these quartets (No. 2, third movement).
