'This is an important study, one that does its part to rehabilitate Haydn's image by stripping away the patina of geniality and na ve bumpkinry associated with 'Papa' to reveal a more human figure, complex and multifaceted in his contradictions. Haydn's Jews is a significant contribution to scholarship on the composer and his time.' Notes
This fascinating study of ethnic theatrical representation provides original perspectives on the cultural milieu, compositional strategies and operatic legacy of Joseph Haydn. An understanding of Haydn's evolving approach to ethnic representation on the stage provides a deeper insight into the composer's iconic wit and humanity.See all Product Description
