Program Notes on Sonata in D Major, Hob. XVI:4 (1/2) -- Urtext by Haydn :

This score contains the first movement of the Sonata in D Major, Hob. XVI:4 by Franz Joseph Haydn.

Haydn composed this sonata - also called Divertimento - for the harpsichord, although it can very well be played on the piano.

This sonata contains two movements :
  1. First movement in D Major (the source contains no tempo indication)
  2. Menuet & Trio in D Major
Please note that this score contains suggestions for playing the ornaments (here : turns, trills and appoggiaturas) in accordance with the performance practice of the Classical period.

In particular, trills, turns and appoggiaturas begin ON the beat, and trills begin on the upper auxiliary note.

The turn in measure 1 and all other similar measures is often placed directly above the first note in other editions.

However, we choose to follow Haydn's advice to this publisher regarding the use of the turn with a dotted note : When employed with a dotted note, the turn shall stand over the dot. Leave some space between the note and the dot in order to make this clear.

This sonata movement is appropriate for Grade 8 pianists.
