Book Description

1 Oct 2008
Haydn was among the first great composers whose fame in his own lifetime endured after his death. While he is loved for a handful of popular, tuneful symphonies and the oratorio "The Creation", the broader scope of Haydn's musical achievements and his fascinating life have been overshadowed by the brilliance of his friend Mozart and the rebellious daring of his pupil Beethoven. Amply supported by superb musical extracts, this biography reveals Haydn as a man of resourcefulness, eloquence, energy and charm. And with the words comes the music: 2 CDs of carefully chosen pieces spanning Haydn's compositional life. Furthermore, the purchaser of the book is given access to a dedicated website which offers even more music to listen to, as well as other bonus material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for my need 11 Aug 2009
If you're like me - just a music listener, not a musician, wanting a good biography that places the music in the context of a life and times, not wanting technical musical info of interest to musicians - then this is exactly right, first rate.
