or. The Jansen Connection In 1791. on his first London visit, Haydn came across the new British grand pianos - heavier, more robust and with greater tonal variety than Viennese makes-and also heard great virtuosi like Clementi, Dussek and the celebrated Therese Jansen. On his second visit he dedicated to her some sonatas which demonstrated how much he had learnt from his earlier encounters.
Melvyn Tan plays one of them and two other works Haydn probably heard in London
Clementi Sonata in G minor, Op 34 No 2 (played on a Broadwood of 1787) Dussek The Sufferings of the Queen of France (1794 Broadwood)
Haydn Sonata in c (n xvi 50) (1787 Broadwood) Introduced by CLIVE BENNETT
