Sir Simon Rattle about Joseph Haydn’s music

Enjoy listening (it’s audio with pictures – no video at all!) to Sir Simon Rattle’s explanatory notes to Joseph Haydn’s music, especially the Symphony No 88.

“… For me he’s the greatest underrated composer who’s ever been…” … “I’m crazy about this music ..”
