Arrangement Haydn Piano Sonata for Small Orchestra

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

The last weeks I am focussing on instrumentation and orchestration.
I wanted to arrange a clear Haydn sonata for a small orchestra with 2 natural horns and 2 oboes. The full name of the sonata:

Piano sonata in D major, Hob. XVI: 37. Beautiful recording by Eschenbach: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6JMbUgxq-0

I wanted to keep the atmosphere of the sonata, which is very energetic, but not complicated.
Because this is for practice, I only arranged the exposition of the first movement.

Score, which I used: Haydn - Piano Sonata in D Hob. XVI;37.pdf

M.Bauer - Small Orchestral Arrangement for Haydn Piano Sonata Hob. XVI;37.pdf

I'd love to hear your feedback!

Good. Remember grace notes need slurs on them. Watch out for your contrary motion near the end and make sure it's what you want. The range distances can be awkward.


Thank you for your feedback!

I will correct the grace notes and look at the contrary motion.
I think you mean the range distances of the first violin and the cello?
