xx On the enjoyment of playing Haydn sonata hob 16 no. 49
May 14, 2011, 03:16:36 AM by iratior

In the first movement of Haydn sonata hob 16 no. 49, in E-flat major is a cadenza with the directions "a piacere".  The fingering for the cadenza can be enjoyable to do, and make it well-nigh surrealistically fast.  Use finger 3 on the F above high C, then again on the E-flat, then again on the D, but almost instantaneously, do the C, B-flat, A-flat, G and F with your left hand, fingered 1,2,3,4,5. Almost instantaneously later, do A-flat,G,B-flat,A-flat,C with the right hand, fingered 2,1,3,2,5, then B-flat,A-flat,G,F,E with the left hand fingered 1,2,3,4,5, then G,F,A-flat,G,B-flat with the right hand fingered 2,1,3,2,5 again, then A-flat,G,F,E-flat,D with the left hand fingered 1,2,3,4,5, then G,F,E-flat,D,C with right hand fingered 5,4,3,2,1, then B,B-flat,A,A-flat,G with left hand fingered 1,2,3,4,5, then G-flat,F,E,E-flat,D with right hand fingered 5,4,3,2,1, then D-flat,C,B,B-flat with left hand fingered 1,2,3,4.  The whole thing can be made to go almost as fast as a glissando.  Of course, whether the sound of it will meet the approval of the critics is another matter.  But it is great fun to do.

xx Suggested tempo for "Tempo di Minuetto"
October 30, 2010, 04:08:38 PM by pteron

Hello. I've been practicing Haydn's Sonata no. 49 in E-flat major, 3rd movement (Tempo di Minuetto) and I'm not quite sure what tempo to play in, especially since I've later heard some recordings which also vary by tempo. Glenn Gould's performance is at about crotchet = 125-130, Horowitz's at around 155-160, and a few others I've heard are somewhere between, but mostly on the faster side.

Earlier I've been inclined to play it at a sort of allegretto, thinking it should retain some of minuet's dance-like quality, but now I'm uncertain. Any suggestions or facts on what Haydn could have considered to be the tempo of minuet?

xx Haydn Sonata in E flat major hob:49 2nd movement

Hi, my teacher decided to let me use this whole sonata for an upcoming competition so I had to finish off this movement after taking a break from it since march with only the notes learnt. I just recorded it, made a few mistakes and my apologies for that.

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
