When Joseph Haydn composed the smaller ones of his early piano sonatas, then called divertimentos, he clearly kept the piano-playing beginner and amateur in mind. With only few technical demands, these works nevertheless provide an excellent insight into the cosmos of Haydn's piano music and exemplarily introduce the player into Haydn's musical language. The current edition combines four of the most popular of these easy sonatas for beginner's lessons, which already contain essential elements of the Viennese classical piano style. The text is based on the revised new edition by Ulrich Leisinger of the legendary urtext edition of Joseph Haydn's piano sonatas by Christa Landon.
