Notes & Reviews:

This series presents the life and works of major composers. One of the healthiest and least neurotic artists in musical history, Haydn did more than any other single figure to pioneer the symphony, the piano sonata and the string quartet. Brilliant, strikingly original and blessed not only with genius but an infectious sense of humour, he was also profound and modest, and his music, copiously illustrated here, has brought happiness and illumination to millions.
