Jospeh Haydn was not only a tremdous prolific Composer, but also obviously a good teacher, among his pupils Ludwig van Beethoven, Sigismund Neukomm and Ignaz Pleyel are still know for their music (as their pedagogic legacy has reached many good students and teacher of later generations.)

Haydns very clear, transparent and soulful singing pianomusic is compared to the music of later virtuosic Pianoheros much more concentrated, on the fundamental musical qualities. Without extreme dynamic contrasts or pianistic excesses it nevertheless affords a rich range of colors even in the dynamic middle ranges aswell as the singing qualities.

to focus on those fundamental musical challenges for the quality of the instrument I choose an

- "Arietta con variazione Eb Hob. XVII3 " which deserves it name for its most singing theme and an

- "Adagio non troppo G Hob. XV 22" an original piano solo arrangement by Haydn of the slow movement of his Pianotrio Hob XV 22.

Imho there are very few samplesets which are ready to convince in that kind of music The VSL Synchron Steinway seems to be again not bad .

I hope you like it
