Dear Haydn, how I love you! But other pianists? They’re rather lukewarm towards you. Which is a great shame. - Richter

In termz of da 88 writin I find Haydn more enjoyable to play (like zcar). Mozart gets a bit fussy.

How about Antonio Polzelli Haydn vs. Franz Xaver Mozart?

Mozart Mondays sounds more radio friendly.

The winner is the one with more minor key sonatas.

Don’t despair. Sokolov will soon present a new program consisting entirely of sonatas by Haydn and Mozart. :sleeping:


Sounds good. :wink:

Pre-2014 I would have hated that, but I really liked both his 2016 Mozarts and the 2017 Haydns. Haydn as much as the music allowed anyway - much like with Schumann Op.5 etc in the other thread I thought they were clearly works by a great composer, but maybe not necessarily great works, as it were.

Haydn sonatas are great, Mozart sonata are Ok.

Not all of Haydn Sonatas are that interesting IMO.
Whereas with Mozart there’s in almost every Sonata a theme, a melody that stays in my mind forever.
