Haydn Studies (Cambridge Composer Studies)
W. Dean Sutcliffe | ISBN: 0521028353 | PDF | 359 pages | English | 12 MB
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.
'Holloway's piece is the most inspiring short essay on the composer I ever hope to read, and itself provides an urgent reason why any Haydn-lover should acquire this book.' BBC Music
'W. Dean Sutcliffe deserves much praise for assembling such an impressive collection.' Times Literary Supplement
