Keyboard Sonata No. 59 by Joseph Haydn


'''Piano Sonata in E-flat major''', Hob. XVI/49, L.59, was written in 1789/90 by Joseph Haydn. It marked the beginning of Haydn's late, mature style with frequent use of alternation between staccato (mostly) and legato (often/sometimes). The transitions were much smoother compare to his early and middle works, with larger first and second movements, and a smaller third movement.
