    Haydn: Variations in F Minor (Sonata), Hob. XVII:6

    In stock and typically ships within 1 business day.


    Haydn's last piano work is also considered to be his most famous single work for this instrument. The Minor theme is filled with emotional depth: "a melancholy andante in F Minor, with variations, as only a genius can do them, that almost sounds like a free fantasia" (thus described in a review of the time). The form is also demanding: not merely one theme but two – one in a Major key, the other in a Minor one – are varied in turn. The autograph gives one to believe that the work was originally intended to be the first movement of a sonata.

    Haydn's andante with variations in F Minor, also known as "un piccolo divertimento".

    This edition replaces the older HN70.
