Haydn was among the first great composers whose fame in his own lifetime endured after his death.

While he is loved for a handful of popular, tuneful symphonies and the 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.

This biography reveals Haydn as a man of resourcefulness, eloquence, energy and charm - all traits that are abundant in his inventive music.
