Follow the development of the sonata through the life experiences of great composer-musician Franz Joseph Haydn. Find the sonata in his personal study at the Esterhazy Summer Palace in Hungary or at its debut on the concert stage in London. Teaching-artist Donna Gunn brings it all together with photos from her experiences abroad, historical primary-source commentary, and artful performances of selected Haydn sonatas.
