Just ordered Haydn’s complete sonata vol.1-4 wiener Urtext editions. Can’t wait to get them! Never played any Haydn sonatas before. Have any of you played Haydn and have any tips/advice or suggestions ?

Looking at doing Hob XVI37 in D Major or xvi34 in b minor first. If you have Haydn editions which have you got and are you happy with it?

my all time favorite Haydn sonata is nr.46 in A-flat major, staple piece.

I like Hob. XVI/37 in D major (as already mentioned) and also Hob. XVI/19, also D major.
I have a Peters edition in three volumes; I think it's Urtext.


My grand piano is a Yamaha C2 SG.
My other Yamaha is an XMAX 300.

What a good decision!

Some years ago I was browsing in a second-hand bookshop in Amsterdam. There was background music - piano music which really caught my imagination. On enquiry I found that they were playing a CD of Haydn sonatas, played by a Canadian pianist, Peter Allen. I have always liked Haydn, but this started me to think more seriously about his sonatas. Despite this discovery I did not attempt to play them until years later.

Some years ago, when I acquired my Broadwood square piano, a friend said to me: "you should play Haydn on it". I have done exactly that, and not regretted a moment. I have concentrated on two sonatas, both late ones: Hob XVI/50 in C major and Hob XVI/49 in E flat. I find them both infinitely rewarding (and just right for the piano, which was made just a few years after their composition).

In terms of advice, I would just say this - pay very close attention to details of articulation and phrasing, and to the little "wedge" marks above individual notes. This is ultra-important if the sonatas are to sound as intended.

I have the Wiener Urtext edition and love it. Everything is laid out extremely clearly.

Enjoy your Haydn journey!

This DMA dissertation done by Yaokun Yang at the University of Kansas is a useful reference on the compositional and interpretive styles of the three stylistic periods of Haydn's musical evolution, and is specific to the piano sonatas.


Play classical repertoire from score. Improvise blues.
