Without Fingering. Composed by Franz Joseph Haydn. Edited by Georg Feder. Henle Music Folios. Classical. Softcover. 226 pages. G. Henle #HN1536. Published by G. Henle (HL.51481536).

UPC: 840126952025. 9.25x12.25x0.722 inches.

Edition in 3 volumes: HL 51481536 (Volume I), HL 51481538 (Volume II), HL 51481540 (Volume III) The revision of the three-volume edition of Haydn's piano sonatas also appears in a version without fingerings. Whoever wishes to study the Classical sonata canon in “pure” Urtext, free from added fingering suggestions, will now also find these in the Henle catalogue. Volume I contains Haydn's early sonatas, very much still born of the spirit of the early Classical period: catchy music, fun to play, often at a moderate level of difficulty, without which modern piano instruction would be nearly unthinkable. Time and again, the authenticity of individual sonatas from this group has been questioned - the preface by Armin Raab, the Scholarly Director of the Joseph Haydn Institute, now provides comprehensive information on new findings regarding this important topic area. Contents: Piano Sonata in C Major, Hob. XVI:1 Piano Sonata in B-flat Major, Hob. XVI:2 Piano Sonata in C Major, Hob. XVI:3 Piano Sonata in D Major, Hob. XVI:4 Piano Sonata in A Major, Hob. XVI:5 Piano Sonata in G Major, Hob. XVI:6 Piano Sonata in C Major, Hob. XVI:7 Piano Sonata in G Major, Hob. XVI:8.
