Haydn’s 52 piano sonatas once again cover a wide segment of his lengthy and constantly developing creative career, the earliest examples dating from around 1760 and the latest from 1794. Written between 1765 and 1767, this programme’s relatively rare minor-key example was one of the first for which the composer used the designation ‘sonata’ rather than the earlier ‘divertimento’ and borrows from the manner of CPE Bach’s emotional Empfindsamkeit style. The Anglo-German tenor joins Sir András Schiff for some canzonettas.
