Symphonies, quartets, concertos and keyboard works poured from the pen of Joseph Haydn, making him one of the most important figures in classical music. Jeremy Siepmann tells the story of the man and his work in this lively autobiography, enhanced by numerous examples of the music itself, taken from the Naxos catalogue. There is no better programme with which to mark the 200th anniversary of the composer's death.

Very Entertaining

An excellent blend of biography and music. The story is interesting by itself. By adding one of Haydn's musical pieces at 10 to 15 minute intervals the author really makes Haydn's life come alive.
