HAYDN: A Good Life

A good biography of the composer, set in the background of 18th century Austria Haydn's life was relatively undramatic and his personality was genial but indistinguished. However, background details woven into the story make for interesting library and school material. Some of the musical details are a bit advanced for the average reader, though they would be important and interesting to music students.
