||Transposed to E major. If performed I would look forward toward a small reference to my efforts.|
Is this the sonata in D major, MH 336, or the sonata in F major, MH 338? There is no sonata in F major, MH 336, so far as I know, if I remember what I saw at haydn.dk.

Part of a set of six Duos for Archbishop Colloredo, of which Haydn wrote four and W. A. Mozart wrote the remaining two (K. 423 and K. 424).* In 1813, Sieber published Michael's four Duos but attributed them to his brother Joseph.
Listing of movements based on RISM which refers in part to its sources, in part to Jaenecke (1990), Joseph und Michael Haydn. Autographe und Abschriften.
*Is this based on the claim/old story that Mozart was filling in for an ill Michael Haydn, etc., etc.? I thought this was regarded as, if not discredited then... well... (I guess not, it's still quoted as recently as 1997 prefaces. Alfred Einstein certainly did not give it much credence in his "Mozart: His Character, His Work", however.) - Schissel (Einstein notes further that the anecdote about the duos stems not from Mozart but from two pupils of Michael Haydn's. See Einstein, 1962, p.186.)
