The Seasons was Haydn's last work of any importance, but one may dismiss from the mind at once the knowledge that it is the composition of an old man approaching seventy years. There are no traces of decadence ; the mind is alert and the skill as great as ever, while the ideas are fresh and there is a never-ending fertility of invention.
The. poem, which 'is a German adaptation of Thomson's ' The Seasons ', deals with the varying aspects of country life during the seasons of the year, and whatever its demerits as poetry it at least offers admirable opportunities for musical illustrations.
