Haydn in London – and Eccles Cake

Haydn Society director Denis McCaldin recently spoke to fortepianist Daniel Maltz about Haydn’s visits to London. The discussion – conducted online, such is the custom in late, coronavirus-gripped 2020 – forms part of Maltz’s ‘Classical Cake’ series of discussions, in which the participants leaven their chat by sharing a cake. It’s appropriate that professor McCaldin has chosen a Lancastrian eccles cake for his edition, given his stewardship of the music department of Lancaster University until 2000.
