Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) wrote the piano trio while visiting London at the age of 63 in 1795. The best known of Haydn’s trios is also known as the “Gypsy” or “Gypsy Rondo” trio because of its Rondo finale in Hungarian style. The trio is in a standard three movements, but the first movement is Andante instead of fast movement (as in Sonata). Haydn spent most of his life in the courts of Esterhazy and Eisenstadt near the Hungarian plain. Haydn was familiar with and fond of the folk music of the region. He based the third movement Rondo on a gypsy theme. Haydn dedicated the trios to his friend Rebecca Schroeter.
