On Haydn, and a Haydn scholar

This year marks the bicentennial of the death of Franz Joseph Haydn, and ironically, just this month, the recent passing of one of the great Haydn scholars of the 20th Century - HC Robbins Landon. A great deal of our understanding and appreciation of Haydn and his music is due to the pioneering work of this man. A full appreciation can be read on the UK Guardian's website.
