Now universally known as one of the world’s leading authorities on music in Europe in the 18th and early 19th centuries, H.C. Robbins Landon decided on his choice of career while still a schoolboy in the 1940s. His goal of rediscovering the music of Joseph Haydn and bringing it to a broad cross-section of music-lovers and scholars has been admirably achieved in definitive editions of scores, ground-breaking recordings and broadcasts, as well as in his magisterial writings, especially on the life and works of Haydn and Mozart – all done with great bravura. In these recollections of his upbringing and student years in the United States, followed by military service in the U.S. Army and an adventurous career based largely in Europe, the author gives a fascinating account of his single-minded quest. Graphic descriptions of important discoveries made in obscure archives in Austria and Eastern Europe, often accompanied by accounts of hair-raising experiences dealing with the authorities in Communist countries in the 1950s and 1960s, are interspersed with many revealing anecdotes concerning leading figures in music over fifty years, including Herbert von Karajan and Walter Legge, George Szell, Hans Keller, Leonard Bernstein and Sir Georg Solti. ‘Horns in high C’ provides insights into the author’s pioneering efforts in the world of music over the course of fifty momentous years.
