Join David this evening for a special look into the life and works of one of the most brilliant composers in classical music history, Joseph Haydn.

In a programme he's titled Haydn and Friends, David gives a fascinating account of the life of the composer, complete with some of his greatest music, including his Trumpet Concerto and choruses from The Creation , along with with stories and friends’ reflections of what made Haydn so special.

There’ll be music from Mozart and Beethoven too, and a re-release of the violinist Igor Oistrakh playing Elgar.
