Editorial Reviews

The multi-award-winning pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet continues his great survey of Haydn's piano sonatas. This is Volume 3 in a series, of which The Times wrote: 'Who is the best composer for refreshing the spirit and making you laugh? Haydn, of course, especially when in the hands of a pianist like Bavouzet, another master of delight'

In the words of Bavouzet himself: 'Each volume of this ambitious, extended project will arrive over the years like a postcard, dispatched during my travels with scant respect for chronological considerations, but undertaken with the greatest passion for trying to convey as vividly as possible to twenty-first-century ears the boundless treasures of this sublime music.' He also notes: 'We often forget how little information Haydn left us in the scores of his keyboard works: few indications of nuance or of phrasing, and the briefest guides to tempo. This task is never anything other than absolutely fascinating, but for the performer it is also testing, and even risky. He must, even more than usual, create his own world, his own logic, left only to hope that, in the absence of tangible evidence, he will not distance himself too far from the composer's intentions, which remain forever unknowable.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Haydn October 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent disc of Haydn's piano sonatas. I love Haydn's piano music; in my view it is the equal of Mozart's and deserves to be much better known. It has all of Haydn's trademark wit and joy, but also real tenderness and beauty and a depth that marks it out as genuinely great piano music.

This is the first volume of Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's projected complete cycle. I have so far heard the first four volumes, and every one is terrific. Bavouzet's admirable technique allows him to get right into the heart of the music. He articulates it very crisply and preserves the structures so essential to Haydn but uses just the right amount of rubato and subtle phrasing to convey the music's meaning and give it real character. He understands, crucially, that Haydn often said serious things in a witty way so that the depth comes through the often melodious and genial air. It is exemplary Haydn playing, I think.

With excellent recorded sound and very full notes this is a very good disc all round. This series won't depose my much-loved Brendel and Schornsheim recordings in my affections, but it is as good in many ways and stands very well alongside them. Very warmly recommended.

(I would also recommend Brendel: Haydn: Piano Sonatas
and Schornsheim: Haydn: Complete Piano Sonatas )
