About the Authors
  • For well over two hundred years, Joseph Haydn has been by turns lionized and misrepresented - held up as celebrity, and disparaged as mere forerunner or point of comparison. And yet, unlike many other canonic composers, his music has remained a fixture in the repertoire from his day until ours. What do we need to know now in order to understand Haydn and his music? With over eighty entries focused on ideas and seven longer thematic essays to bring these together, this distinctive and richly illustrated encyclopedia offers a new perspective on Haydn and the many cultural contexts in which he worked and left his indelible mark during the Enlightenment and beyond. Contributions from sixty-seven scholars and performers in Europe, the Americas, and Oceania, capture the vitality of Haydn studies today - its variety of perspectives and methods - and ultimately inspire further exploration of one of western music's most innovative and influential composers.

    • Summarizes and synthesizes current Haydn research, and points to directions for future scholarship
    • Organized around more than eighty concepts with numerous cross-references to broaden themes and take readers on rewarding journeys of discovery
    • Includes seven substantial essays by leading scholars to illuminate connections between the A-Z of concepts and suggest ways to rethink familiar categories

    'This is a fascinating, wide-ranging volume written by leading Haydn scholars from around the world. The simultaneously substantive and incisive essays, a pleasure to read as they enlighten at every turn, ably reflect and build on recent Haydn scholarship. In short, The Cambridge Haydn Encyclopedia is essential reading for all musicians - performers, listeners, scholars, critics - experienced and inexperienced alike, who want better to understand and appreciate Haydn and his remarkable musical achievements.' Simon P. Keefe, J. R. Hoyle Chair in Music, University of Sheffield, and author of Mozart in Vienna: the Final Decade
