Classical Recordings Quarterly;Autumn2012, Issue 70, p104
The article discusses the alleged genuine and forged works of music composer Joseph Haydn in the second half of the twentieth century. It cites the works said to be the six keyboard sonatas that were erroneously attributed to Haydn, with Paul Badura-Skoda and H. C. Robbins Landon claiming that they were genuine works by the composer. It also presents Haydn's "String Quartets, Op. 3 Nos. 1-6," whose authenticity is being questioned.
