Haydn's piano sonatas were long disseminated solely in the form of copies; it was not until 1774 that a printed edition also appeared; containing the sonatas Hob. XVI:21-26 and dedicated to Haydn's aristocratic employer Prince Nikolaus Esterházy. With an opening movement characterized by two contrasting themes; a sensitive Adagio in F minor and a sparkling Presto Finale; no. 3 of the collection; in F Major; is an outstanding example of the classical sonata. Perhaps this is why this technically challenging work has remained the most popular of the set. This Urtext edition; prepared by Haydn specialist Georg Feder; uses the musical text of the Haydn Complete Edition; supplemented by fingerings by Hans-Martin Theopold.
