There is a lovely balance of fortepiano, flute and cello in these three light and entertaining pieces. Haydn liked to enjoy himself and this is the enjoyment of music for private salon and personal use. This is fun and the musicians here seem to be enjoying themselves. The cello is used to reinforce the left hand of the piano while the flute and the piano right hand have some beautifully crafted melodies. Haydn wrote these pieces in 1790 and they hark back to an earlier time and the type of music known as the divertimento. The sleeve note is informative. The instruments used are appropriate in this lively recording. There is a freshness about the music and delight in little surprises.
