After the death of prince Nikolus in 1990, Haydn retained his appointment with the new prince named as Anton at a reduced salary. Because of the same, Hadyn accepted an offer from Johann Peter Saloon who was a popular German violinist. Haydn was popular in Germany by then. Also his music dominated the concert in London. His works were distributed by the publishers widely. In 1791, Haydn came to London where he stayed with Great Pulteney Street and worked in a borrowed studio.

At the symphony he also performed the Occasion no. 92 which was known as the Oxford Symphony. In London, he also met the young Ludwig van Beethoven in Bonn. He came to Vienna later and took Beethoven with him in order to Eisenstadt for the summer where he also taught Beethoven some counterpoints. In addition to this, he also arranged some of the performances in the local concerts. When he came back to England in 1794-1795, he had become one of the most popular figures in the London concert. During this time he presented a number of concerts which included the premiers of 99th, 100th and 101st symphonies. After this Haydn also performed the concert number 102, 103 and 104 (Larsen et al, 1982).

In addition to this, he also appeared before the public and led the performances of the two great oratories.
Further, he also composed the Trumpet Concerto, Fifths, Emperor and Sunrise. One of his brief works Gott erhalte Franz den Kaiser also attained huge success and became the amblem of identity of Austria and later as the national anthem of Germany. In the year after 1800, Haydn’s works had been impacted by his old age and the decreasing health. His health was deteriorating at such a fast pace that he had to struggle in order to complete his last work. The final work by him was released in the year 1802 and was named as Harmoniemesse.
By 1803, the condition of Haydn had further declined and it was so bad that it wasn’t possible for him to compose anymore. He also suffered from the problems such as weakness, dizziness, inability concentratation and the swollen legs. Though there wasn’t a diagnosis for his disease during that time, it was later assumed that he would have been suffering from arteriosclerosis.

In his last years, Haydn was looked after very well by his servants and also received a number of public honors during these times.
