Format: Audio CD
Emanuel Ax's subtle sensitivity and crystal clear tone suit these beautiful sonatas perfectly. For the listener who appreciates fine phrasing, and the subtle appreciation of every note, it doesn't get any better than this. Haydn truly understood the piano ("clavier"), and he knew how to use it to the fullest. And Emanuel Ax truly understands Haydn. The combination makes for wonderful music. If you need lots of loud, dramatic playing to catch your attention, then this is not for you. If you like clarity, refinement, and sterling silver tone, you will love this CD. By the way, the CD sound quality is top-notch.

I discovered this album via this year's Grammy Awards. Yes, I know these awards are sometimes politically motivated, but regardless, the sonatas and Emmanuel Ax' performance are wonderful and impeccable. The first movement of the 29th Sonata is a delight and like much of Haydn has some basis in Austrian folk songs. You hear that in Haydn anyway and this is a good example. Because he uses fewer notes than his wunderkind, Wolfgang Mozart, the tones seem more memorable and truer. I am buying the other two Ax performances of Haydn's sonatas.

Format: Audio CD
Released in 2003, after a nearly ten year hiatus, this third volume is what finally appears to be a bonafide Ax Haydn sonatas traversal; but, unfortunately, given the lapses in real time its completion may take decades. The upside to this is, however, the evolution of the artist and his perception of these works. In this latest recording, Ax eschews his former romantic proclivities and adopts a patently classical stance. Somewhat now restrained is the memorable sensitivity Ax brought to Haydn, the warm illumination and characteristic gentleness. Instead, the sonatas bristle, the playing articulate, manicured and direct. Through spare use of pedal, Ax delivers clean attacks and crisp execution, tending to propel the compositions with a somewhat austere virtuosity. This cool approach seems anomalous for Ax and, as well, Haydn. Distance does not, in this case, make the heart grow fonder. The recording, in addition, only accentuates what may be the artist's disappointing new preferences for frugal sonority, percussive staccato and stylistic objectivity.
