Editorial Reviews

These Haydn offerings (with the exception of Hob. XVI/49 which was recorded analogue) were among Alfred Brendel's first digital recordings for Philips and still remain among his most satisfying. Brendel's performances are aristocratic, yet never at the expense of Haydn's lighter and often humorous nature. All the repeats are observed and the sound- especially for early digital-- is audiophile quality. A set all Haydn fans are guaranteed to enjoy. '.


1. Sonata In C Minor Hob. Xvi : 20
2. Sonata In E Flat Major Hob. Xvi : 49
3. Sonata In E Minor Hob. Xvi : 34
4. Sonata In B Minor Hob. Xvi : 32
5. Sonata In D Major Hob. Xvi : 42
6. Fantasia In Minor Hob. Xvii : 4
7. Adagio In F Major Hob. Xvii : 9
8. Sonata In C Major Hob. Xvi : 48

Format: Audio CD
Among his favourite composers, Alfred Brendel has developed a long and fruitful partnership with Joseph Haydn. Exponent of the Viennese Classicism, Haydn seems to be one of the most suitable of composers to Brendel's playing style, from several reasons.

Mainly, both the composer and his interpreter exhibit generously quite similar qualities when making music, such as: an unfailing wit, a refined sense of humour, and a tireless disposition to play - to play with emotions, with unanswered questions, even with philosophical or ethical themes. Yet, in this intelligent game nothing gets strident. Neither dark-hued accents nor colours of despair arise. A smile is never missing, even though the mood of a slow movement in a certain sonata or some variations could be entirely serious. Everything is light, though - or rather for - deep settled in tradition. The equilibrium comes from a special disposal of the musician with regard to inner and outer worlds. Brendel feels and knows how to convey these particular features, like no other Haydn performer. To better understand what I mean, listen to the slow movement of the Sonata in E flat major Hob. XVI: 49 (Andante cantabile) or enjoy the sparkling finale of the C major Sonata Hob. XVI: 50 (Allegro molto).

Furthermore, one can easily notice that Brendel and Haydn share the musical pleasure of professing the classical poise with elegance and gusto. The harmonies seem simple and obvious, whilst the melodic lines breathe an air of inevitability. This deceptive simplicity seduce first. Nevertheless, the lively finger-work displayed by Brendel makes Haydn gain more distinction, more appeal and potentiates glowing facets of his music (like in from Sonata in C minor Hob. XVI: 20).

VIVIEN SCHWEITZER has good things to say about this collection in the excellent article of September 10, 2009, in the New York Times entitled Haydn Recordings: A Legacy Reconsidered. The whole article is an omnibus review of favorite Haydn recordings by NY Times reviewers.

Brendel, as usual, looks deep into Haydn's sonatas and plays them if they deserve the attention he gives them. After hearing these works you might wonder why we know Mozart's piano sonatas so well, when Papa's are every bit as good.

While I agree that Brendel is outstanding and perhaps the best at Haydn - just like at Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert's Impromptus -, I must say Mr. P. Adrian's all other statements, and not only the expressions "Haydn's omnipresent smile" and "classical poise", are empty (and sometime untrue) truisms. "Dark-hued accents or colours" do arise all along the Sonata in B minor, in that in C minor, and occasionally elsewhere.
