These divertimenti can be performed with two violins or flute and violin.
Though not nearly as well-known as the "London Trios," these are six delightful divertimenti. Straightforward and full of Haydn's esprit, they are a treasure trove for all lovers of music-making in the home. The stylistic variety of these cheerful pièces d'occasion surely reflects the fact that they are partly based on earlier models: Haydn's baryton trios as well as arias and other items from his opera "Il mondo della luna" ("The World on the Moon").
