Joseph Haydn: Variations In F Minor (Sonata) Hob. XVII:6

Books | Piano

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Composer: Franz Joseph Haydn
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Haydn's last Piano work is also considered to be his most famous single work for this instrument. The minor theme is filled with emotional depth: a melancholy andante in f minor, with variations, as only a genius can do them, that almost sounds like a free fantasia (thus described in a review of the time). The form is also demanding: not merely one theme but two - one in a major key, the other in a minor one - are varied in turn. The autograph gives one to believe that the work was originally intended to be the first movement of a sonata. This single edition has been taken from the recently revised volume of Piano Pieces (HN 224) and furnished with a detailed commentary. Henle also recently published a facsimile of Haydn's autograph of the Variations in F minor: HN 3218.

            This is a beautifully printed score. The quality of the paper is good and the print is clear.The delivery was very prompt and the packaging more than adequate.

            What a superb piece this is, a truly wonderful set of variations! And it must have been in Schubert's mind when he wrote his great Fantasy in F minor for four hands.
