In the third and final and maybe most delightful part of a mammoth conversation we had some months ago, we finish up by discussing some meatier details of Haydn: the value of his early quartets, his daily routine, his brother Michael, and (I think of it as) how Haydn saved music, or just showed up at a pivotal point in history, as well as what to remember when listening. Schubert also gets a mention. Check out Mike's fantastic Haydn resource at www.fjhaydn.com, and find me at www.fugueforthought.de, and share on social media. Enjoy.
