I voted for both.  I think that Haydn was more conservative than Mozart,while he experimented more with the piano.
If it is a matter of Classicisim Sonatas ,Clementi's are much better than Mozart's.

I'm pretty glad with this poll. I believed I was a monster, for prefering Haydn above Mozart.

(But Mozart's  klavierkonzerte are the best of the best of the world!!!!!!   ;D

Mozart is just so expected. You can expect what is coming next. Mozart's beauty is in his concertos.
I think Haydn is more dramatic and more deep.

I have kind of a love / hate relationship with the Mozart sonatas. I dont get much out of them musically, but they are very clever and I love studying them.

Mozart for sure!
Haydn's sonatas are too 'dramatic' for me.

(maybe Haydn is only for adults, Mozart is for kids! )  ;D

Why do we continue to ask such irrelevant questions? Moreover, why is there a continuous influx of replies that use a lot of flowery adjectives, but essentially mean nothing at all.  What the hell..."more dramatic" and "more deep"?!?!  Firstly, it's "deeper" not "more deep", and secondly, this means nothing. For drama, both composers' sonatas exhibit Sturm und Drang, as for the comment "more deep"...well this means nothing at all.
