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.
