あらすじ・解説

Almost from the moment it was first set to paper, the music of Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) - technically superb, rich in quality, and widely imitated - has exemplified the Classical style, creating not only the Classical-era symphony but setting the standard, through his own 68 string quartets, against which that form has ever after been judged.

And yet Haydn, despite the influence left by more than 1,000 works, seems to no longer get his due, often thought of as an aged figure surpassed and overshadowed by Beethoven and Mozart, who actually credited Haydn, the only contemporary he admired, and with whom he formed a lasting and artistically fruitful friendship, with teaching him how to write string quartets. Even Beethoven, whose relationship with his compositional teacher was troubled and stormy, would never have been able to write his triumphant Ninth Symphony without the influence of Haydn's crowning achievement, the towering 1798 oratorio, Creation.

Now, in a series of eight vivid lectures, you can learn to understand and appreciate the music of one of the most original and influential composers of all time as you explore his origins, influence, and greatest works.

Another masterpiece from Greenberg

The narrator makes this great. He varies his pace, foreshadows, goes on occasional rants and just makes this biography very entertaining. I have listened to his long form courses. this is a great sample for someone who wants to try him out.

Fantastic! I'm a Haydn convert!

Professor Greenberg is animated and erudite. I love both his serious side and his irrepressible humorous side. I have many of his courses in my Audible library, and whenever I finish one, I'm on to the next. Looking forward to queuing up the next one right now!

Greenberg is entertaining

This is among the best of these classical music courses. Greenberg is a huge personality, enthusiastic and not for everyone. But he is easier to follow on audio than video, at least for me. The lectures and music examples have an adequate balance with the lectures illustrating the music examples. It does bother me that the sound quality of the music in these presentations is generally poor and almost always monophonic. After all, the music is polyphonic.

R G is disgustingly incompetent

R G arrogant, pretentious, sloppy, tries to be cute, is misleading. R G seems to presume that his audience is ignorant adolescents, and instead of edifying he patronizes.
