London's great landmarks and attractions have inspired composers over the centuries. Indulge in a spot of musical sightseeing with 15 of the best classical pieces inspired by the city. By Rob Weinberg.
Haydn’s set of London symphonies – sometimes called the Salomon symphonies after the impresario who brought the composer to London – were written during a four-year period in the 1790s. One set was written during Haydn's first visit to the city; the other was composed in preparation for his second visit. Pictured are the concert rooms in Hanover Square where Haydn gave his first series of concerts in 1791.
