When Joseph Haydn arrived in London on January 2, 1791 at the age of 58, it was as a composer at the height of his powers who had already left an indelible mark on the piano sonata, string quartet, and symphonic genres. Once liberated by the death of his employer Prince Esterhazy, he left for England almost immediately. He knew his stay could bring him international fame, and to achieve this he wrote with incredible frenzy, producing his final masterpieces in genres to which he would not return: symphonies, trios with piano, and the three London sonatas played here. Mathieu Dupouy plays an original fortepiano by Jakob Weimes (Prague, 1807).
