    Very good! So, what is your favorite Haydn-Sonata? Do you have one? When may I listen to a record of it? (BTW, with my former music-teacher I played all the four bands of Haydn-Sinfonies arranged for piano four hands.)

    At this time I still had no equipment for making digital records (it was in the 80th and early 90th we did this), I only made very few records on tapes (cassettes), but the quality of these tapes are very bad today. Some I could remaster with my wave-program, but unfortunately I have no records of the four hand Haydn-sinfonies. We just played them for fun and enjoying them and mostly not ripe for a record to be published. And I have to say, for me this is one of the greatest joy. Fine, that you like four hand-playing.

    Well, I love this one in D major ...in fact I have a recording of it here. You can find it on the Haydn Sonata page. And I love the first movement to the E major .... but the last movement is a clunker.

    Yes, the E-major is great! I will listen to your record of D-major. I like also c-minor very much, the one with the "Terzen" and the sighing-motiv, you know?

    I listened to your record of first movement of D-major. Very good! Some slips, mainly in the execution-part. But I find a bit unusual your quite big hesitation at the end of the execution before the reprise. Other parts have a real nice expression. (I do not so much expression here.) Do you record on a digital-piano?

    Yes, I record on a digital piano. I practice on my uprights and my digital, but record only with the digital.

    Thank you for your comments. That recording was one of my first posts here at PS. And I actually play it quite a bit better now. I may re-post that one sometime.
