“Haydn: Sonata No.60 in C major Hob.XVI, 50
Chopin: Nocturne in F sharp minor Op.48 No.2; Mazurka in C sharp minor Op.50 No. 3; Ballade No.3 in A flat Op.47
Rachmaninov: Two Moments Musicaux Op.16: No.1 in B flat minor, No.4 in E minor
Appropriately for the occasion, all three composers can be said to have been ‘migrants’ in some way or other. Haydn felt isolated and very unhappy during the years he had to live in rural Hungary at the Esterhazy Estate, Chopin was always yearning for the homeland which he could never see again, and Rachmaninov likewise had to leave Russia after the revolution.
