ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Editor's Notes:
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was the first great composer of the Classical period. He was schooled in the Baroque traditions of Bach and Handel and studied the pre-classical style of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's sonatas. Yet from his earliest compositions, Haydn forged a new style of writing that set him apart from his contemporaries and ultimately made him the model for the Classical period. He is often regarded as the father of the symphony and the string quartet: he saw both genres from their beginnings and brought them to a high level of sophistication and artistic expression. Rhythmic vitality, melodic cheerfulness, and humor permeate Haydn's music. His genius is revealed by the quality of invention, excellence of variation, and formal development of his compositions.

The most numerous of Haydn's piano works are the sonatas. As with symphonies and string quartets, Haydn wrote piano sonatas his entire life. His formal structure and strength of key (tonal) relationships had a profound influence on Mozart and Beethoven, who brought the sonata form to its peak in the Classical period.

Nelita True's performance of the six sonatas on this recording is a refreshing reminder of the joy and vitality of Haydn's piano music. Infused with elegance, wit, and irresistible charm, Ms. True's interpretations are an inspiring role model for pianists. A music book correlated to the sonatas on this CD is available from your favorite print music dealer. Please ask for "Haydn: Six Easy Sonatas" (GP395), Selected and Edited by Keith Snell, Neil A.

Sincerely,
Keith Snell, Producer
