Sunny Serenade

This easy piano arrangement of a very famous string Serenade is instantly recognizable, but it's not 100% certain that Haydn wrote it. Certain musicologists attribute it to Roman Hoffstetter, a Haydn contemporary. Hoffstetter was a “superfan” of Haydn. In the 21st century, he’d likely be classified as a stalker. Likely, he composed this little Serenade as part of a string quartet, the serenade being the second movement. The piece has been arranged for solo piano, for solo violin and piano, solo violin and orchestra, and there are even wind transcriptions available.
