There are 18 Klavierstücke on this disc, all played with excellence by Bart van Oort on fortepiano.
And these are all wonderful arrangements, too.
I actually recognized the melody of one of them from another Haydn piece. Track 4 is an arrangement from Symphony HOB I:85/III.
I like this CD. In fact, I think I can classify it as FAVORITE!
These arrangements seem to be grouped into five sections:
Arrangement From a Musical Clock
- one track
Arrangements From Symphonies
- eight tracks
Arrangements From the Opera “La Vera Constanza”
- three tracks
Arrangements From String Quartets
- two tracks
Arrangements From Piano Trios
- four tracks
I provided the first track for your listening enjoyment. If you want the rest, I suggest you visit YouTube. They’re probably there.
NOTE: Tomorrow is my last day with Franz Joseph Haydn. Starting Friday, February 28, I begin watching all of Woody Allen’s movies – at least, all of the ones he directed. I believe there are some 46 of them.
