In the first of two videos about a seriously underrated composer, MITA lead author Robert Winter traces Joseph Haydn’s modest roots from a corner of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to his gradual but inexorable ascent to the most famous composer in all of Europe. The session is capped off with an exploration of the first movement of Haydn’s “Military” Symphony
This MITA Lesson, recorded via a live webinar, is part 1 of a 2-part series. Act II completes the Symphony and explore Haydn’s contribution to the string quartet. View Act II here.
