Okay, okay, I know several of you will think this question is an oxymoron, but which do you think is the best Haydn sonata? I think that the D major, No. 50 Hob. XVI/37, is probably his most well-known, but rightly so? He wrote so many! What are your favorites to play?

Hoboken 52 is my favorite, and is one of Haydn's greatest achivements in the sonata medium (string quartets included).

The two C major (48 and 50) are also great.

I like:

L. 31 (A Major, with the "Minuet al Rovescio")
L. 41 (Ab Major)
L. 38 (F Major)
L. 50 (D Major)
L. 53 (e minor)
L. 60 (C Major, "Plink Plank Plunk")
L. 62 (the famous Eb one)

I'm always happy to see a Haydn topic. I think his sonatas are unjustly neglected. The big Eb and C major sonatas are often played, along with L. 38 and L. 50, but there are many other gems!

(This is "JS", BTW...my other login seems to have been erased or lost, so now I have a new account - with a catchier name!)

We all know that this is your troll account, JS. Just come clean. laugh

BTW, did you ever know a pianist named Rob Auler at Michigan? He was studying with Nel.

Or maybe Chris Atzinger? Either names ring a bell?

Aye, both names ring bells. Didn't really know either of them that well, but I do recall both being great players. Chris had a fantastic Barber concerto!

Thanks for the replies! I'll try to find some recordings...any suggestions for a good one?

April

P.S. Mom and I saw Anton Nel earlier this year in A-2 playing the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 (I think smile ). We were seated in the VERY front row...it was treacherous on my neck, but we were close enough to see his hands shaking!!! I left feeling much better about my own performance jitters. cool

That's the great thing about either of the Brahms concerti - no one feels comfortable playing them! You get so much out of it, though.

Nel also has a Haydn disc (I'm sure that it was recorded live at the Naumburg competition) which is exquisite - I'm sure that it has most of the sonatas that were mentioned here.

Ax also has a fine disc.

Brendel has a good disc or two of Haydn as well. One I have is on the Philips label I think.
