Über diesen Titel


Concerts flourished in London during the second half of the eighteenth century as never before. Enterprising promoters developed subscription series around the new symphony orchestra, and the lucrative environment attracted both Mozart and Haydn, whose last twelve symphonies were written for London. This book is the first detailed investigation of a lively and innovative period in London's cultural life, combining a social study of concert audiences with analysis of their musical tastes and the repertoire they inspired.


"...lends the subject important new perspectives." Notes

"...McVeigh's excellent book vastly increases our knowledge and understanding." Choice

"Concert Life in London from Mozart to Haydn has been ingeniously constructed to read both as history and parable....Concert Life in London from Mozart to Haydn not only charts a period of exceptional growth, but it organizes an astonishing number of untapped sources to do so." Times Literary Supplement

" exhaustive guide to concert performances in the latter half of the eighteenth century. This is an encyclopedic work assembled by a meticulous scholar....a guide of the first order." James H. Johnson, Journal of Modern History

"The range of things taken up heighten awareness of what goes into the making of any musical culture." Key Reporter
