    The year 1790 brought the death of Haydn's patron Nicolaus Esterhazy and the subsequent sacking of his music staff; the impresario Johann Peter Salomon seized this moment to lure the celebrity composer to London for two visits in 1791-2 and 1794-5. Hogwood makes extensive use of contemporary documents - such as newspaper reports and Haydn's own notebooks and letters - to examine the English public's Haydn-mania and the composer's own reactions to new people and experiences.
