In particular the disc includes a work by Thomas Linley the Younger, a contemporary of Mozart, who tragically drowned at a young age. Writing in the magazine, Patrick Wood considers how "the young Thomassino" was a match for the great Mozart.
Also in the March/April issue - which is devoted to music of Jane Austen's time - you can read of Haydn's visit to Bath in 1794 in his own words; how much Jane Austen knew about music; the significance of the harp as an instrument of social status in Jane's time; and learn about the Knyvett family of musicians.
The My Jane Austen feature is by Professor Richard Jenkyns, a descendant of Jane's brother, James, who recently appeared on a BBC radio programme called Jane Austen's iPod. The presenter of that programme, David Owen Norris, has written about recent musical discoveries in Jane's family archives.
In this issue:
- Franz Joseph Haydn the composer describes his visit to Bath in 1794
