Franz Joseph Haydn: Trios Fur Zwei Floten Und Violoncello

Books | Chamber music with winds

Catalogue No: HN454
Composer: Franz Joseph Haydn
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

London, with its bustling musical scene, always provided Haydn with welcome surroundings at a time when the Flute was extraordinarily popular among English amateurs. The Earl of Abingdon, an accomplished flautist, undoubtedly enjoyed playing these entertaining trios. Abingdon was a member of Haydn’s circle of acquaintances in London and a composer in his own right: a theme from one of his songs (“The Lady’s Mirror”) served Haydn for a set of variations in the second trio. Neither of the men could have foreseen the huge success that these cheerful and straightforward pieces would enjoy among music-lovers all over the world.
