Classical Music: Era of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven (Norton Introduction to Music History)

Covering the period between the birth of Haydn in 1732 and the death of Beethoven in 1827, Philip Downs, the author writes of the diversity and evolution of music during this period, dividing his text into 20 year spans and describing the social conditions affecting the lives of the composers and musicians as well as audience preferences. Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven feature largely but even the lesser known composers are included and there are many musical examples and illustrations within this book.
