Franz Joseph Haydn Documentary

           Franz Joseph Haydn documentary.

Interesting documentary which concentrates on Haydn’s visits to London, the people he met such as Herschel (who discovered Uranus through his new telescope) and discussions of his music. They show his last home (now a museum) and his beautiful Walter fortepiano. In addition they show some clips of live performances of his symphonies like The Surprise and The Creation.

    Lovely and stylish blog, Matilda! I see we share many similar tastes.

    • Thank you Bryan- yes we do share many similar tastes. I like your blog very much. I’m a beginner in music theory/piano so my articles are not as technically detailed as yours (LOL) but I do like to write about experiencing music as a listener and promoting HIP! I am always reading and learning. 🙂
      I am very interested in the 18th and 19th centuries and the instruments of that time.
