Product Details


Haydn was primarily responsible for shaping the Classical style of performance. During the 18th century, when composers focused mainly on the sonata, quartet and symphony, Haydn's slow-maturing genius assimilated and consolidated the trends into an individual style that was both inspired and disciplined. These eight pieces are among Haydn's easiest works and are presented in their unsimplified, original form. Based on careful study, the editorial markings are clearly distinguished from the composer's.
