FJ Haydn

‘Lord Nelson Mass’

The Nelson Mass according to Joseph Haydn’s biographer is arguably the composer’s “greatest single composition”.  It is a work that was written at a time of intense fear for the future of Austria, whose citizens were not in the best of spirits. In 1797-1798 Napoleon Bonaparte had defeated the Austrian army in four major battles, even crossing the Alps and threatening Vienna itself.

The prevailing political and financial instability even impacted the musical forces that Haydn had at his disposal in the Esterhazy court where he spent some 30 years of his career. Haydn’s patrons had dismissed their wind players and the composer was left with a mere string ensemble.

No wonder then that Haydn called his latest work the Missa in Angustiis or Mass for Troubled Times. As the public mood approached the point of terror, Haydn wrote an opening movement in D minor, a key that he had loved ever since hearing it used to evoke doom in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. With his limited ensemble, bolstered by a few hired trumpets and timpani, Haydn created a stark and powerful sound world.
