In 1784; Joseph Haydn dedicated three piano sonatas to Princess Marie Esterházy in which the composer surprisingly turned to a two-movement form. This is also the case with the Sonata in G major Hob. XVI:40; which begins with a pastoral idyll in 6/8 time that is effectively complemented by a Presto full of clamorous gaiety. The editor of our Urtext edition; Georg Feder; is considered on of the most important Haydn researchers of his time. The fingerings by piano pedagogue Hans-Martin Theopold are a helpful aid for all those who work on this sonata.
