HaydnBook - 1987
Haydn was born in humble circumstances in 1732. In this fascinating biography, the author traces the rise of the composer from his early years to his death in Vienna in 1809. The mood and atmosphere of the period are re-created by the use of contemporary reports, recollections of fellow musicians, and Haydn's own letters and diaries. Illustrated with paintings and engravings of the time.
