Joseph Haydn's Piano Trio No. 39 in G major Hob. XV/25 was written in 1795. It is perhaps Haydn's most well-known piano trio and sometimes nicknamed the "Gypsy" or "Gypsy Rondo" trio because of its Rondo finale in 'Hungarian' style. It consists of three movements:

  1. Andante
  2. Poco adagio, cantabile
  3. Rondo a l'Ongarese: Presto

The work was published by the English firm of Longman and Broderip, with the opus number (seldom used today) 73. All three of the Opus 73 trios are dedicated to Haydn's friend Rebecca Schroeter.
