Haydn, Mozart & the Viennese Style
In this series we will trace the development of the Viennese classical style through the music of Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Join us as we explore the symphonies, concertos, and overtures of these two composers using audio and video clips featuring some of the greatest conductors and pianists of the twentieth century.
