Notes and Editorial Reviews

A distinguished musician once paused during a lecture and said "You know...the great composers are much underrated!" As so often in humor, this joking remark concealed a profound truth. Haydn's music, has in the past, often been undervalued. When compared to Mozart and Beethoven, he has been seen as a lesser figure although it is difficult to understand why this might be. In his own lifetime, he was acknowledged to be a great master and his creative genius, while different from that of his two greatest contemporaries, was in so many ways, equal to theirs. Haydn was a great innovator and an essential and influential figure in the development of symphonic forms during the latter part of the 18th century. Despite this, many of his finest works Read more remain virtually unknown today. There are many neglected masterpieces among his operas, symphonies, trios and quartets. Between 1765 and 1795, he wrote some of the most original and finest solo keyboard music we have from that period, but only a handful of these works are heard in today's concert halls. Yet the keyboard was the foundation of his art, and many of his keyboard works encapsulate his musical genius. Read less
