Summary:

A fascinating journey to rediscover the music of a composer who was lauded in his day yet forgotten soon after, The Dresden Manuscripts chronicles David Wilson’s thirty-year quest to locate, reconstruct, and perform the music of Johann Adolf Hasse, a composer who, along with his equally famous wife, mezzo-soprano Faustina Bordoni, had close personal associations with Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydn, and Gluck.

“Dr. Wilson takes us on an emotional and fascinating journey into the life of this genius and shows how even one person’s passion can make a difference in bringing back the lost treasures of the past.”—Vivica Genaux, world-acclaimed mezzo soprano
