Haydn Sonata Hob XVI.7 Analysis: Its benefits with WKMT
If you are a piano student who is interested in performing this Sonata or perhaps a piano tutor who is currently teaching this piece or maybe you would like to do it in the future, this article written by Mtra. Gisela Paterno is the right for you.
These analyses are part of a massive project at WKMT to cover all the corpus of Haydn Sonatas. The reason: he was the creator of the form, or at least, the main contributor to what we call Allegro di Sonata.
As a piano teacher, you would probably know how important is the analysis of the pieces we are interested in performing and how often we don’t have enough time to go through it during a lesson; that is precisely why these articles are paramount for any piano lesson as provides the written material we lack, facilitating the reading of the information for our students at home and leaving us to the technical aspects during the sessions.
Related to the topic mentioned before, WKMT specialises in the Scaramuzza technique, and they are the first ones to add technical advice targeting pianists into this technique, making them pedagogically advantageous if you compare them with other analysts.
Another thing to consider is that the vocabulary can be easily related to Arnold Schonberg and mostly William Caplin, author of the book “Analysing Classical Form” which Juan Rezzuto base his free composition and music analysis lessons which are streamed live every week.
Here not only you can find valuable information regarding how to analyze and how to compose in Classical style, but lessons in Harmony and Counterpoint delivered by the author of this Haydn analysis, Gisela Paterno.
