An embellished return of the opening and a brief coda round-out the movement. The exquisite Adagio cantabile is an ABA structure in B flat major with highly decorated thematic material.
Haydn composed them induring his second visit to the English capital. Haydn wrote it at about the same time as his London Symphonies and it shares their intellectual energy, impressing the listener with the formal variety. His exploitation of the dynamic potential of the relatively new piano grows with each of his last sonatas.
Chromaticism is once again a prominent feature of the movement, though this time its use is entirely humorous. Haydn is often considered more innovative as a composer than his contemporary Mozart and this is quite evident in his last piano sonata.
Instead of the traditional rondo, Haydn chose to compose a fast sonata-form movement to close the piece. The energetic Presto finale begins with a tune that seems at first unable to get underway. On Sonata e flat major by joseph haydn third attempt, it finally breaks free into a florid run over alternating tonic and dominant harmonies.
It shares a certain intimate style with other works directed toward Genzinger, but is quite Beethovenian in some respects. Even for Haydn, the harmonic exploration of the Sonata in E-flat major is unusual. The Sonata in E flat major, H. Twice it starts up, first in the tonic key of E-flat and then a step higher in F minor, each coming to a halt on a pause.
Rich in harmonic surprises and full of elan, the Presto finale could just as well have been the closing movement of one of the London Symphonies. Compared to those of the symphonies Haydn composed during this same period, the transition between key areas is brief.
After the Trio we hear a literal return to the Minuet, as we expect, but only the first part appears and it turns out to be a bridge to the second Trio, in E flat minor. Chromaticism is thrust to the fore from the outset and is a feature constantly explored throughout the piece.
Returning to the distant key of E major, the middle Adagio begins with an elaborate melody divided into two sections with each repeated. The development section visits just about all the material of the exposition, which, aside from transpositions and a few alterations to the transition, is restated in the recapitulation nearly note for note.
Jansen was also the recipient of another piano sonata and three piano trios. Some of these works have been lost because Haydn gave the manuscripts to his students without making copies. Structured as a large ternary form, the middle section is less melodic than the opening, adopting a more fantasia-like character.
The development begins in the foreign key of C major but an even greater harmonic leap is made when the second theme later returns in the key E major.
Haydn was never a keyboard virtuoso, but had a number of students for whom he composed piano sonatas. This in turn is followed by a slightly varied reprise of the entire first Minuet section in E flat major.
Though its first section remains firmly rooted in the tonic key, its latter half briefly moves through the key of C major, reemphasizing the harmonic explorations of the first movement.
Often, such pieces were directed toward women, who were expected to attain a moderate degree of accomplishment on a keyboard instrument in order to be "eligible for marriage.
None of its three movements is subordinate to the others. In the opening Allegro, Haydn expertly juggles with the tone colors of the themes: Everything begins conventionally enough: Concerning the late C major sonata, Haydn referred to the second movement, an Adagio, as "quite new The first genuinely new material appears at the very end of the exposition, and forms the basis for a long development.
The first movement, in sonata form, is marked Allegro non troppo and moves forward quickly in a bouncing triple meter. The first Trio opens with a theme built of descending scales, which contrast with the rising figures of the second part.
In the recapitulation, the transition, as usual, resolves the secondary material to the tonic. Instead of the usual rondo structure, the finale is written as a full-fledged sonata form.
We hear a plethora of material on the secondary key, B flat major, most of which shows up in the extensive development.
Haydn composed a large Minuet with two Trio sections as the finale of the E flat major sonata. The dotted rhythm and general shape of the main theme create a strong relationship between this and the first movement.
The wide range of ability among his students accounts for the disparate levels of sophistication and technical difficulty we find among the surviving sonatas, most of which were written before Joseph Haydn: Sonatas Haydn´s earliest surviving keyboard sonatas were most likely composed during the period beforewhile he survived by teaching piano.
Probably a lot of similar works have been lost because Haydn gave the manuscripts to his students without making copies. The Piano Sonata in E flat major, H. 16/52, is often described as Haydn's finest work in the genre. Forming more of a cohesive whole than either of its siblings, Haydn 's E flat major sonata is exceptional in both size and scope and manipulation of tonal material.
