A brand new multimedia biography of Haydn published just before the 200th anniversary of his death in 1809.

Haydn was among the first great composers whose fame in his own lifetime endured after his death. Loved for a handful of popular tuneful symphonies and his oratorio The Creation, the broader scope of Haydn’s musical achievements and his fascinating life have been overshadowed by the prodigious brilliance of his friend Mozart and the rebellious daring of his pupil Beethoven. Amply supported with superb musical extracts, this biography reveals Haydn as a man of resourcefulness, eloquence, energy and charm – all traits that are abundant in his inventive music.

And with the words comes the music...
