Haydn's English Adventures

11 October 2024, 3:30pm - 4:30pm

Shortly before Haydn’s departure for England in 1790, Mozart told him: ‘You have too little experience of the great world, and you speak too few languages’. Yet the move was to be the most fruitful and exhilarating of Haydn’s life. He received his doctorate in Oxford in 1791, and almost certainly performed in the Holywell Music Room. Writer and broadcaster Richard Wigmore, author of the Faber Pocket Guide to Haydn, brings to life the composer’s time in England and in this great city.
