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!

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.
Put in one of IMO, I think, to me, for me... or similar to all sentences I post

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...
