Joseph Haydn – Klassiker zwischen Barock und Biedermeier

With the encouragement of H. C. Robbins Landon, Manfred Huss wrote a comprehensive book on the life and work of Haydn based on the latest research findings, the first modern one of its kind in the German language (Joseph Haydn – Klassiker zwischen Barock und Biedermeier; Eisenstadt 1984, Edition Roetzer). Huss’s prime interest in undertaking this work, however, was to acquire the profound information about eighteenth-century performance practice that was to become the intellectual basis for his later work with period instruments.
