Program Notes

Haydn is best known for his symphonies but his chamber music is also excellent. He wrote several piano trios and the best known of these is the G major Trio with its so-called Gypsy Rondo.

- Program Note from publisher

This creative new work, scored for solo brass quintet and band, is based upon the third and concluding movement of a piano trio called the Gypsy Rondo, composed by Joseph Haydn (1732-1809). The key center begins in Bb major with shifts to and from Db major as the rondo episodes unfold.

- Program Note from The Instrumentalist

Joseph Haydn's Piano Trio No. 39 in G major Hob. XV/25 was written in 1795. It is perhaps Haydn's most well-known piano trio and sometimes nicknamed the "Gypsy" or "Gypsy Rondo" trio because of its Rondo finale in 'Hungarian' style. It consists of three movements: Andante, Poco adagio, cantabile, an Rondo a l'Ongarese: Presto.

The work was published by the English firm of Longman and Broderip, with the opus number (seldom used today) 73. All three of the Opus 73 trios are dedicated to Haydn's friend Rebecca Schroeter.
