Haydn Heeeer's Haydn! LONG PLAYING SELECTIONS Piano

Haydn’s Long Play

These second movements – (the “slow” movements) – in Haydn’s Piano Concertos; are thoughtful, introspective, gentle and seductive! – Just my cuppa tea!  Some of Mozart’s piano concertos are very close in structure and feeling –  almost like ‘twin compositions.’ However, Mozart is usually regarded as the ‘greater’ – for his depth and complexity.

(*** See the Post: “Good Buddies – Mozart and Haydn”***)

Hmmm … I wonder. Sometimes Haydn’s simplicity and directness seem easier on the ears and just as beatific.

This is a LONG long playing selection. First you’ll hear the piano Concerto in F, Hob. XVIII/F2 … followed by the second movements of the following Piano Concertos: 3,4,5,9 and 11

    Hi Jim,
    I like Haydn very much so I really enjoyed this presentation.The piano which uplifts the spirits with its tinkling melody is perfectly balanced by the Ensemble accompaniment. Lovely, serene music that completely destresses you!
    I particularly like the 2nd movement of No 11.
    Thankyou for this .
