This recording of Mozart’s Piano Sonatas was the esteemed pianist Andreas Haefliger’s first for Avie. Hailing from one of Europe’s musically elite families, Haefliger’s music background has firmly steeped him in the Austro-Germanic tradition. His intellectual interpretations of the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann have been noted for his acute sensitivity and breathtaking technical precision.
"...The recording is ideal – intimate, yet not so close as to emphasise mechanical sound in the instrument. Haefliger is sometimes quite noisy, with little intakes of breath, occasional grunts etc. But that doesn’t bother me at all, and hopefully it won’t you either. It’s nice to be reminded that there’s a real live musician inside the box!"
