Haydn's variations to me are even greater manifestations of his genius for variety, his perfect counterpoint and voice-leading, and the balance of his forms and structures than his beloved sonatas. Especially the famous Un piccolo Divertimento in F minor, Arietta con Varizione in A, and Arietta con Varizione in Eb. Still, even more beautiful than his fortepiano/pianoforte compositions are his oratorios, from the passionately tragic Seven Last Words of Christ to the autumnal Seasons. His genius was spellbinding.

It took me around 15-20 minutes to play through his variations in f minor for the first time. (w/out repeats too)

It is great to see such enthusiasm for Haydn's sonatas! I have the Vienna Urtext Edition of them and am pretty sure they are chronologically arranged. I play them all regularly.

I can´t stand Clementi.

I don't know what possessed me to pick-up a book of Clementi Sonatas from the library the other day but yesterday I started playing one (op.36?)... it felt like I was slipping into a coma. Anyway, I abandoned it part way and quickly reached for Haydn Sonatas vol. 1 and played the first 6 sonatas to purge myself.

I've heard some of Bredel's recordings of Haydn and like them.

Is anyone aware of any recordings of Haydn Sonatas played on a Fortepiano?
