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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'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.' The Times Literary Supplement
