Joseph Haydn
Piano Concerto 11
in D Major, Hob. XVIII: 11

Although concertos did not play a large role in Haydn's output, this one is a favorite with pianists and audiences for its cheerful Vivace, melancholy Adagio, and rousing, exotic "Hungarian" Rondo.

Background

The piano concerto never played an important role in Haydn's output, but in this mature work he approaches the ease and stylistic mastery of the contemporary king of the genre, Mozart. The last movement Hungarian Rondo is particularly catchy.

Anthony van Hoboken’s thematic catalogue of Haydn’s works, published in 1957, lists 11 pieces under "Keyboard Concertos" (Category XVIII). Since then, two of these (XVIII:7 and XVIII:9) have been rejected as false attributions. The D major concerto was the last to be composed, and is by far the best-known of the remaining 9 concertos. The work enjoyed wide popularity already in Haydn's own time, judging by the many surviving copies from the period.
