By Robin Friedman HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 16, 2007
Format: Audio CD
In the mid-1980's Emanuel Ax recorded three volumes of Haydn piano sonatas in what was anticipated would ultimately become a complete set. The project has stalled, but fortunately there is a great deal to be enjoyed in Ax' recordings of Haydn. ( A fourth recording appeared a decade after the earlier efforts.)

This CD consists of Ax' first Haydn recording and it has been reissued as part of Sony's budget-priced "Great Performance" series. It includes four sonatas from different periods of Haydn's work in the form. Haydn composed keyboard sonatas throughout his career, beginninng in the early 1760s. and concluding during his second trip to London in 1795. As with his symphonies, a listener can follow the development of the form in Haydn's increasing mastery over the years of the keyboard sonata.

The earliest sonata on this CD is no. 33 in C minor, Hob. 20. This work dates from 1771 and is a worthy companion to the famous minor-key symphonies, including no 39 in g minor, no. 26, the "Lamentation" symphony, and no. 49 "La Passione" that Haydn was composing at about this time. The sonata is in three movements, with passionate and expansive outer movements in C minor and a singing, highly ornamented andante con moto for the middle movement.

The sonata no. 38 in F major Hob. 23 is also a three-movement work composed somewhat later in 1773. This piece is part of a series of six sonatas Haydn composed for his patron,Prince Nicolaus Esterhazy. It has been described as containing "some of Haydn's very best keyboard music" along with its companions in the sonatas dedicated to Esterhazy. It is contemporaneous with symphonies Haydn composed numbered in the 50s.

I heard this recording by Ax in my car while driving home from work while listening to the SIRIUS Symphony station-and loved it. I immediately got on line and bought it and have been playing it at home and in the car ever since. I haven't paid attention to Ax recordings for quite some time-not since I owned several on vinyl 30 years ago. I may have owned this very recording. Listening to a classical music station I learn a good deal -as much as I did in college when I used to go to the symphony once or twice a week as a grad. student at the U. of Toronto...2 Canadian dollars and a university card got one in to the symphony or opera where one could experience Rostropovich, Ashkenazy, Horowitz and etc.! I would then go to record stores and spend hours reading and learning from record jackets ( ah, the good old days). Knowing several musicians at that time who could advise helped as well. So, that is my pedigree ( as it were). Buy this recording. It is the 100th anniversary of the death of Haydn at the end of June 2009...celebrate with these recordings. You will not be disappointed. A music lover.
