London, with its bustling musical scene, always provided Haydn with welcome surroundings at a time when the flute was extraordinarily popular among English amateurs. The Earl of Abingdon, an accomplished flautist, undoubtedly enjoyed playing these entertaining trios. Abingdon was a member of Haydn’s circle of acquaintances in London and a composer in his own right: a theme from one of his songs (“The Lady’s Mirror”) served Haydn for a set of variations in the second trio. Neither men could have foreseen the huge success that these cheerful and straightforward pieces would enjoy among music-lovers all over the world.
Eine neuere Einspielung der Werke … dauert ca. 35 Minuten; das heißt, daß sich die Notenkosten (der Stimmen) in diesem Fall auf ca. 50 Cent pro Minute berechnen lassen. Das ist die Sache allemal wert.

Here is more delightful Haydn, beautifully presented in Henle’s clear, “no-frills” style. …Henle’s 17 by 24 cm ancillary study score (HN 9454) is perfectly readable - a far cry from those miniature scores that we used to pore over.
- Trio 1 in C Hob. IV:1
- Trio 2 in G Hob. IV:3
- Trio movement in G Hob. IV:4
- Andante in G Hob. IV:2
