Brought together in the early part of the 19th century, some of the pieces in this collection are transcriptions of instrumental works. However, these masterfully constructed miniatures are well suited to keyboard performance and are characteristic of Haydn's humor, tenderness, charm and passion. The selections provide intermediate pianists with a wealth of musical ideas and harmonic invention, and are similar in difficulty to Haydn's Sonatinas.
