Haydn Memorial Year 2009

Hungary Post is commemorating the birth of the Austrian composer Joseph Haydn, the first great master of Viennese classical music, by issuing a special stamp.

The stamp design is a witty graphic composition using artistic licence to give a new function to the keys of a piano and the notes, thus raising a memorial in an individual visual message on the 200th anniversary of the death of Joseph Haydn. An unusual feature of the stamp issue is that every other row of stamps in the sheet is inverted.

The first day cover depicts the lines of the staff and the special postmark shows Joseph Haydn's name and the years of his birth and death.
