This week's programmes concentrate, so far as our imperfect knowledge of the dates of some of Haydn's compositions allows, on five periods of his career, and this first programme features music he wrote before 1760, the year of his 28th birthday. From 1756 Haydn was in Vienna earning a modest living from teaching and composition until, in 1759, he entered on his brief period as Kapellmeister to Count Morzin at Lukavec in Bohemia.

With an INSTRUMENTAL ENSEMBLE led by CHRISTOPHER HIRONS directed from the harpsichord by GEORGE MALCOLM : Act 1
by Dr Paul Davies , Lecturer in Mathematics at King's College. London.
Dr Davies argues that our present conception of cosmology is that of a rise and fall of the universe: the cosmos started with a violent explosion which cooled to form galaxies, stars and planets. Over the ensuing aeons relentless decay will set in, slowly destroying the cosmic activity familiar to us. Eventually all will be consumed by black holes and even they will decay, leaving a cold, dark, chaotic space. Does our new understanding of the universe create a new principle of ignorance?
