Following his critically acclaimed first release for Avie of Mozart Sonatas (AV 0025), Andreas Haefliger delivers the first in a series of recital recordings that pleases and provokes in equal measure. Perspectives 1 replicates one of Haefliger’s recital programmes which he has toured internationally. Underpinned by Haefliger’s hallmark Austro-Germanic repertoire – works by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert – he tantalizing includes Thomas Adès’ austere Darknesse Visible, which the composer describes as “an explosion of John Dowland’s lute song In Darknesse Let Mee Dwell.”
"...Within the context of this disc this Op. 111 nevertheless works as a thought-provoking climax to a fascinating 71 minutes’ worth of listening. Markus Heilan’s recording is true, vivid and spacious. Recommended."
