About the Authors
  • Haydn Studies deals with many new aspects of a composer who is perennially fresh. It concentrates principally on matters of reception, style and aesthetics and presents many radical new readings of the composer's work. Contributions by both established Haydn scholars and others who are new to the field combine to give a stronger sense than is generally understood of the composer's immense significance.

    • Contains interesting readings of Haydn's music
    • A wide variety of subject areas and works covered
    • Contains contributions by established scholars and those fresh to the field
