Haydn Sonata Hob XVI:16

Postby ddr » Tue Dec 14, 2010 1:38 am

I downloaded Avguste Antonov's rendition, and noticed that this is not actually that sonata. The three tempi are the proper ones to go with XVI:16, with which I'm familiar, but the tempi performed obviously belong to another sonata. Also, the key is listed as D, while XVI:16 is in E Flat. All that said, I was very impressed with the work played under that name, as well as Antonov's performance; can you tell me: (1) What is the work played as XVI:16, and (2) Is the actual XVI:16 located in the list of sonatas under another title? Thank you very much for your help.

The recording (at least the first movement) is Sonata in Bb Major Hob XVI/2 (Landon No.11)

Edit: The proper movements are:
Minuet [-Trio-Menuet da Capo]

@ddr - thanks for pointing out the error.

@Eddy - thanks for figuring out the correct sonata number. I don't understand how all that got so screwed up!! It is now corrected.
