The advances in Haydn scholarship would have been unthinkable to earlier generations, who honoured the composer more in word than in deed. Haydn Studies deals with many aspects of a composer who is perennially fresh, concentrating principally on matters of reception, style and aesthetics and presenting many interesting readings of the composer's work. Haydn has never played a major role in accounts of cultural history and has never achieved the emblematic status accorded to composers such as Beethoven, Debussy and Stravinsky, in spite of his radical creative agenda: this volume broadens the base of our understanding of the composer. Contributions from Leon Botstein, James Webster, Jessica Waldoff, Daniel K. L. Chua, Mark Evan Bonds, Michael Spitzer, W. Dean Sutcliffe, George Edwards and Robin Holloway. Fine hardback copy in VG dust jacket. 343 pages. Shipping Category: Book/Large Score.
