The Jerusalem Piano Sheet Music is an epic composition written by the musical genius Joseph Haydn. This piece of music was first performed in London, where it gained a lot of popularity, and has now since become one of the most popular classical piano pieces there is.
The Jerusalem Piano Sheet Music bears many other names such as ‘Piano Sonata No. 53, Symphony No. 79’ and variations on this theme.
After Jerusalem had gained huge popularity in London, it was performed throughout Europe as a result of its great reception and critical acclaim. It therefore became the most widely played work by Haydn after The Creation (Staier & Spering, 2009). Jerusalem is also regarded as an anthem of Jerusalem, with songs such as Jerusalem the Golden and Bright Jerusalem (Wikipedia, 2011).
