Hello,
I recorded Haydn Sonata C (Hob XVI: 50) major recently - unfortunately, only the first movement. I'd appreciate if you comment and criticize. Thank you.

What a treat to hear your performance of this movement.

It's full of energy and drive, and it positively sparkles through the clarity of your playing.

Thank you!

Regards,

To be honest, I was expecting not to enjoy it only because I've heard this sonata many times(it might be the second most performed after the E flat...which I don't like). But I watched the entire performance with great pleasure and the fact that I've heard this Sonata a lot never entered my mind.

Bravo!! Wonderful playing.

Sure, the good quality of the recording and the reverb effect enhances your performance too.

Add me to those who say "Bravo." laugh

At musical and pianistic challenges go, I think Haydn is sometimes thought of as sort of nothing -- and boy, is that a mistake. I think most Haydn, like Mozart, is an incredibly quick indicator of what kind of pianist and musician we are hearing. Everything is just so transparent and magnified -- touch, balance, rhythm, dynamic control, phrasing. And here, within just a few seconds we can tell that we're hearing a superb pianist and musician.

I loved it too. I thought the articulations and phrasing were lovely.

I might share one thing that was recently pointed out to me in my Haydn playing, which is that it's important not to overuse the bright/brilliant forte sound when playing Haydn. Other tone colors can make things more interesting. For example that lovely moment around 4:40, we could have had more like that.

But, that's just for you to think about, and if any of the Haydn sonatas are GOOD candidates for a bright/brilliant sound to dominate, this is the one...
