This fair-sized sonata-allegro sounds a lot like typical classical music to me. I'd guess that it sounds the most like Mozart, Clementi, or perhaps Kuhlau or early Beethoven (think before-his-Pathetique-Sonata early). IMO, Haydn typically composes drier piano sonatas.

This piece's last modified date claims to be in November 2015, but part of me thinks I finished its notes earlier than that. At any rate, I came up with the exposition's theme groups before I graduated from Grade 12.

Unusually, the first theme I came up with was actually the codetta (Bars 37-42). I think I came up with the first theme group next, then the rest of the second theme group.

In Bar 27, I think I actually use a German augmented 6th without realizing it at the time. Normally, I consciously use augmented 6ths and Neapolitan chords, so this is surprising to me...and makes me wonder when I finished writing this.
