Franz Joseph Haydn (1732 1809) is renowned as one of the most
eminent and prolific composers of the classical period of western
music. By the end of his life he had become one of the most famous
composers in Europe. He developed the musical forms which became
the symphony and the string quartet and was also instrumental in
the development of the sonata. This volume, first published in 1902
and written by biographer and contributor to the Dictionary of
National Biography James Cuthbert Hadden (1861 1914), focuses on
Haydn's career and personality rather than his music. Arranged
chronologically according to major locations where Haydn visited or
lived, Hadden describes Haydn's daily life, character and growing
fame in great detail. Based on the first comprehensive biography of
Haydn, Carl Ferdinand Pohl's Joseph Haydn, this volume was
considered the most complete account of Haydn's life in English at
the time of publication.
