Tune of the Day: Little Serenade
by Joseph Haydn
Today we propose the melody of a short piece for solo piano attributed to the great Austrian composer Franz Joseph Haydn. The piece appears in at least a couple collections of piano pieces, but unfortunately none of these books seems to mention an opus number for it. It is actually quite possible that the piece was not composed by Haydn, especially given its resemblance to the famous Serenade by Roman Hofstetter, which also used to be attributed to Haydn.
Thanks to Henry for suggesting this piece!
