With this E-minor piano sonata, Classical-era composer Haydn created a work that displays positively romantic traits. Agitation and excitement are expressed in the main ideas of the first movement, while contrasting seriousness and cheerfulness come into sharp relief in the finale. Of Haydn’s sixty-or-so piano sonatas, the E minor Sonata numbers among those of moderate difficulty. Our editor, Georg Feder, is considered one of the most important Haydn researchers of his time. Consequently this is a well-researched scholarly Urtext edition with an extensive preface, outstandingly adapted for practical use with fingerings by piano pedagogue Hans-Martin Theopold.
