Joseph Haydn: Sonatas

Haydn´s earliest surviving keyboard sonatas were most likely composed during the period before 1760, while he survived by teaching piano.
Probably a lot of similar works have been lost because Haydn gave the manuscripts to his students without making copies.
Most of these sonatas are short, relatively easy and in a three-movement format (fast-minuet-fast). From the mid-1760s the Sonatas are weightier and have much larger structures, with substantial slow movements.
With Hob. XVI:44 (1867) Haydn also ventures for the first time into the minor mode – this is the case with only five of his piano sonatas.
During the 1770s, Haydn composed at least 18 keyboard sonatas, published in sets of six. The one in C minor, Hob. XVI:20, stands out as one of the masterworks of Haydn´s Sturm und Drang period.
The three sonatas of 1784 are interesting formal experiments; each is in two movements and only one movement is in sonata form. The late sonatas were written in connection with Haydn’s visits to London: Hob XVI:50 and 52 were written for Therese Jansen, a leading English pianist. They give evidence not only of Jansen´s formidable technique, but also of the more powerful sonority of the English piano in comparison to its continental counterparts.

xx ornaments in Haydn
January 20, 2008, 12:46:03 PM by kevink

Does anyone know where I can find resources on the performance of ornaments in Haydn sonatas?  I hear many different takes on how these should be played, and want to try to find out what is the closest to authenticity.

Thanks,
Kevin


xx Extroverted Haydn Sonata?
July 23, 2007, 01:39:09 AM by dnephi

I was thinking the c# minor sonata, but do you have recommendations?  I'd like to do one which is demonstrative of classical control of form at its best but also some daring harmonic innovations and some sturm und drang.

Any Ideas?  (Please provide HBK #s)
