Format: Audio CD
Joseph Haydn composed for the keyboard throughout his long career. His earlier sonatas were written expressly for the harpsichord. Only in mid-career did Haydn begin to compose sonatas expressly for the piano. It is instructive to listen to Haydn's sonatas chronologically to hear how he developed the form over time. This particular CD of Haydn's sonatas includes the moment of transition - when Haydn changed from denominating a keyboard work for harpsichord and began to designate his writings for the piano. Equally important to this historical transition, the works included on this CD are engaging and delightful. This CD is part of the complete cycle of Haydn sonatas on Naxos performed by Jeno Jando, who is at his best in this repertoire. The disk is available separately or as part of a box set of Jando's performance of the Haydn sonatas that Naxos has released at a budget price in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Haydn's death. (1732 - 1809).

The four sonatas included on this CD are each in three movements and were composed between 1766 and 1773. They did not get published until a decade later. The earliest sonata, no 29 in E-flat major, Hob.45, dates from 1766. Haydn called it a "divertimento", and it was composed for the harpsichord. Together with two of the other three sonatas on this disk, the work opens with a moderato rather than an allegro. The opening theme is based on a rising and rhythmical two-note phrase, and there is a lyrical secondary theme played over an Alberti bass (a broken 4-note chord.). New listeners should note how Haydn uses a variety of simple thematic material over the course of the movement. The second movement is an andante in two parts. It is based on a light, embellished theme and on a great deal of counterpoint.

Haydn, like Mozart, mocks the distinction between major and minor keys; to wit, his Sonata No. 29 in E Flat. I know little of its genesis; I'd prefer to keep it that way. Only a man who has befriended solitude and desolation could have penned it: it's athirst with longing where expectancy is minimal. Haydn could almost be the Omega Man, imprisoned as he was in a fairy-tale castle in the middle of nowhere at the behest of a princeling. To intensify matters, the great Sturm und Drang Sonata, No. 33 in C Minor follows on its heels. It too is vesperal. It asks: what is not vanity?

It will take bribery, subterfuge or explosives on the part of Jeno Jando - the Naxos warthog - to secure a niche in the Pantheon. Nevertheless, he is an artist of mettle and insight. Here, he's in the Goldilocks Zone: the piano at his disposal is played leanly but not sparingly. Bass receives its Peter's Pence. The two lighter sonatas, 34 in D Major and 35 in A Flat Major, are beguilingly played. Here is an instance where Naxos' engineers surpass themselves: the sound is excellent.

Come nightfall, throw everyone out of the house and listen to this disc. Hitch a ride on a Union Pacific boxcar with Papa Haydn as it heads westwards into the gloom.
