Fantasia in C major (Op.58; Hob. XVII:4) was written by Haydn in 1789 for the pianoforte. Based on a folk song about a farmer's wife chasing her cat, one can easily imagine in the music kittenish scampering, stealthy approaches, unexpected pounces, and mad chases with abrupt changes of direction. The style and playfulness of the piece lend themselves well to flute and clarinet. The transcription is able to capture the feel Haydn intended, with new coloring, while at the same time affording flutists and clarinetists the joy of experiencing the work first-hand.
