Piano Sonata in E flat major, Hob XVI:25
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Alone among the ‘Esterházy’ sonatas, No 25 in E flat major has two movements only. Its march-like opening Moderato, texturally enriched by frequent octave doublings, is grand in aspiration, if rather discursive in effect. The finale, a sturdy Tempo di menuet, is written in strict canon virtually throughout, with the right hand taking the lead in the first half and the roles reversed in the second.
