F.J. Haydn: Complete Piano Sonatas - Volume 2

Books | Piano

Publisher: Dover Publications
Composer: Franz Joseph Haydn
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
The towering composer who perfected the early symphonic form and invented the modern string quartet also left his indelible mark on the sonata. During 50 years of inspired creative effort, Haydn experimented constantly with the sonata form, adding a clear thematic structure to the tonal design inherited from earlier composers. This comprehensive new playing edition conatins 52 sonatas by the master - a treasury of keyboard compositions in which echoes of the baroque and harbingers of romanticism blend with the lucidity and elegance of 18th century classicism. Reprinted in two volumes from an authoritative Breitkopf and Hartel edition, the sonatas are arranged in a chronological sequence based on recent scholarship. Extremely clear and readable, with ample space for notes, this Dover edition is a must for serious pianists, students and music lovers in general. It is an excellent, inexpensive means to study and savour the inventive daring, freedom and mastery that Haydn brought to the piano sonata.

        The second volume of this wonderful and inexpensive edition of Haydn's sonatas, completing the set. The music is very clear and sufficiently spacious to be read easily.
        This edition only contains the music score, no background information or performance hints; but Haydn's music speaks for itself.
