Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Haydn's concertos aren't heard that often, but on the evidence of this disc, they ought to be. Most of his 14 concertos for harpsichord or fortepiano are probably spurious, but the three played by Andsnes and his fine band have the scholarly seal of authenticity. That seal refers to their provenance, not the modern piano Andsnes plays with high spirits and wit. The best known is the D Major, identified as No. 11. It's captivating here, as Andsnes revels in the vivacity of the outer movements and sings the adagio with welcome warmth. The other two works, while lesser, are highly enjoyable. Good sound adds to the disc's pleasures. --Dan Davis

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid Performances Of The Three Haydn Piano Concerti December 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Is Leif Ove Andsnes the greatest pianist of our time? I strongly doubt it. Yet every recording I've heard from him is replete with his brilliant technique and lyrical phrasing on the keyboard. This is yet another excellent example, which proves that he feels as comfortable playing Haydn as he does with Grieg's or Chopin's Romantic piano scores. Yet his playing isn't at all Romantic here, but more of a subtle, almost delicate, nature, which is fiery only when called for by the score. The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra offers ample support, never overshadowing Andsnes' playing. The sound quality is exceptional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic Haydn October 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
These are exceptional performances, of great emotional maturity, on a par with his collection of Haydn sonatas. The majestic concerto in D is for once not taken too fast. We are much in debt to the musicality of Mr Andsnes, and the skill of the recording technicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars sparkling haydn September 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Compared to Haydn's symphonies, piano sonatas and string quartets, his piano concerti are relative rarities. Athough they do not deserve to be ranked together with Mozart and Beethoven's masterpieces in the same medium, they are certainly worth hearing.

On the evidence of this sparkling CD, the 3 piano concertos as heard here are shortish, tuneful and pleasant affairs. Andsnes as conductor and soloist makes the most of the works. His lively and alert pianism is a joy to the ears, as is the beautifully clear and detailed sound.

This is one of those discs that you might elect to play after a tiring day when you need to relax and chill out. A treasurable collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leftover Ant's nests. June 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This disc is a perfect example of how to make a disc worth listening to in a thoroughly saturated market. Choose repertoire that has more or less been ignored by artists and record companies and treat it as though you have discovered something new and exciting, and that is excatcly what you will get. At no time listening to this will you get a sense of these works being poor relations of Mozart's concertos.

There is a wonderful quiet, intensity to these performances achieved through brisk tempi, delicate touch and wonderfully attentive accompaniment. Grumpy Grabowski misses the point when comparing these recordings to Richter. Andses has made an aesthetic decision by playing the works in this way and the sense of unity thoughout the disc is a big part of its success. His playing is not about making personal statements. The slow movements are sometimes ravishingly cool.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suppleness and wit: Andsnes's Haydn concertos August 6, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Norwegian piano star Leif Ove Andsnes is world-wide recognized as a fine musician, with a huge repertoire spanning diverse styles from baroque masters to contemporary composers. Also, successfully championing Nordic music whose essence he knows from inside, Andsnes belongs to the wonderful class of pianists who puts the composer (and his score) above all temptations to exhibit performer's sparkling skills or musical obsessions.

This way of playing is revealed copiously on this recording, where he performs as soloist and conductor three of the most celebrated keyboard concertos in Joseph Haydn's catalogue. Paired by Norwegian Chamber Orchestra (excellent chamber ensemble!), Andsnes reads with suppleness D major, F major and G major piano concertos by that beloved Viennese maestro of the classicism with a special care for the delicate and witty mood the XVIIIth century claims. His touch is graceful without being boring, lively but not over-energetic, elegant yet way far from simply pedantic. Pianist and orchestra - an inspired match for music!

Two years ago I attended a chamber recital of Andsnes (with Christian & Tanja Tetzlaff) at the Romanian Atheneum in Bucharest during the "George Enescu" festival. I could praise then - and recognize now, on this recording - the same elegant effectiveness in his playing, his phrases imbued with romantic fervor (when it came to Schumann's Trio), or the joyful approach (in Mozartean pages), his constant altitude in dealing with the deep meanings of the score.

Leif Ove Andsnes - in my opinion - stands as one of the most important pianists of the century with a sane vision of the music he performs, fond of going to meet the music in its own terms rather than waiting for music to come to overlap his affinities and skills. In short, a musician who serves the music and not is he served by it.
Five stars!

Andsnes conducts and plays the piano in these excellent performance of three of F. J. Haydn's piano concerti. The recording is good and the performance is, arguably, the best that I have heard. The Norwegian Chamber Orchestra gives crisp accompaniment to Andsnes' bracing performances. All of the works show Haydn's mastery and his ability to have the greatest effect with something simple. The best surprise here was the fairly early Concerto in F (Hob. XVIII:3). The Largo cantabile slow movement in C is worthy of J. S, Bach, while the energetic outer movements show delightful, almost Baroque, energy. The other concerti on the disk are Haydn's Concerto #4 in G (Hob. XVIII:4) and the Concerto #11 in D (Hob. XVIII:11) with its celebrated last movement. This CD is a wonderful gift for yourself or someone else in our hectic, angry age.
