Piano Sonata Hob. XVI:49 is the autograph manuscript by Joseph Haydn of his sonata in E-flat major for the composer's close friend, Maria Anna von Genzinger, a talented amateur pianist. He dated the score to June 1, 1790, although the first and third movements had been composed the year before. This was toward the end of the composer's thirty-year employment by the Esterhazy princes, spending most of his time at their palace in Hungary and commuting home to Vienna. The sonata is considered a turning point in the composer's development, marking a new maturity in his style.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.
