So it is time to ask a rather stupid question, but I believe I am caught in that finals week hangover where everything blurs together. I looked at the first movement of the Haydn sonata for a test, and assumed it was in sonata form, but most of the class think it was in rondo form. Enough so, that I am curious as to what others here think.

I think its in sonata form. It has a clear development section and a typical harmonic scheme - 1st section I - V, 2nd section V7 - I. While the main 1st theme comes back I don't see it repeating enough times at different points to call it a rondo.

I have not looked at the score, but there is such a thing as hybrid sonata-rondo form like in many last movements of mozart piano concertos

But not in the first movements. I haven't looked at the Haydn sonata the OP asks about, but casually thinking about Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven sonatas (and quartets and symphonies and concerti), I can't think of a single example of a first movement in Rondo form. Can anyone?

Yeah, I thought it was regular sonata form the entire way. it yielded some cool surprises in the recap, but it was not a rondo.
That being said, when a majority of your class wants to say it is a sonata rondo, you do have to pause and ask.

Definitely Sonata-form. Suggestions of any type of rondo are a bit bizarre, really.

Neither can I. There is a Rondo by Mozart that's in sonata-form.

Haydn, Sonata in G Major, Hob. XVI: 39 is a strange "rondo" with the usual Haydn-esque variations on the A section.

We thank Papa Haydn for bridging the chasm after the wearying Baroque Era ... but by today’s standard Haydn’s Sonatas are dull and predictable ... the work under focus is typical of the Haydn format ... a chirpy Treble theme supported on strumming LH bass. (boring)

Thank goodness the later generations of Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin elevated the plot to something more groovy.

Imagine being one of the younger generation and having to play the whole of Sonata Hob 16/35 for an exam ... I’m glad to be and Old Dog.

PS By the way, we have got a thunderstorm on the go ... lightning and thunder followed by the heavens opening up ... mid-afternoon darkness ... must get
myself another cup of comforting tea.

I think most of the class is clearly 100% wrong.

It's in sonata form. You can't even make a case for it being a grey area. People who thought it was a rondo should get zero points. You should get 100 points.
