01A Choral Scholar20161024

Donald Macleod focuses on Michael Haydn's early years as a choral scholar.

Donald Macleod explores the pre-Salzburg days of the man who would became known as the Salzburg Haydn - Joseph's brother Michael Haydn.

Having a world famous composer for a brother isn't easy. Despite being hugely respected in his own lifetime and thought, especially in sacred music, to be at least the equal of Franz Joseph, Michael Haydn has not been kindly dealt with by history. A modest man, comfortable in his Salzburg surrounds, Michael Haydn's lack of ambition seems to have held him back, and his works are rarely heard today. This week Donald Macleod tries to redress the balance by exploring the life and work of a composer admired and respected by Mozart, and revered by Schubert.

In today's programme, Donald explores Michael Haydn's early years as a choral scholar with his brother Joseph, and then in his first appointment to bishop Baron Adam Patachich in the town of Grosswardein.
