    The title "Solo per il Violino" which Haydn gave these sonatas in his "Entwurf-Katalog" (the handwritten catalogue he maintained of his own works), already gives us an indication: it is only the violin which is treated as a solo instrument in these six sonatas – the viola has an accompanying role. Haydn might have written these "soli" for himself; but they also might have been for Luigi Tomasini, the "first violinist" at Esterházy's court. Today, these duos enjoy great popularity, particularly for teaching purposes. This edition follows the text in the Complete Edition of Haydn's Works – with the addition of specially composed cadenzas.
