 Andreas Haefliger piano
   

Andreas Haefliger continues his fascinating, thought-provoking, and captivating Perspectives series in which he juxtaposes the Piano Sonatas of Beethoven with works of other composers, casting an enlightening glow on the works which one would not detect if they were played in isolation. On Perspectives 6, themes of humanity, nature, and love run through a programme emphatically to be listened to rather than analysed intellectually. Haefliger opens with Beethoven’s early Piano Sonata No. 10, Op. 14, then segues into two of Berio’s seldom heard encores, Erdenklavier and Wasserklavier. He emerges to perform Beethoven’s late Piano Sonata No. 30, Op. 109, followed by two more miniatures by Berio, Luftklavier and Feuerklavier. The album culminates with Schumann’s great Fantasy in C.



                         Interpretation *****          Sound *****          Repertoire *****

Anja Renczikowski - Piano News magazine (Germany) - September/October 2014


                           IRR Outstanding

"...Haefliger, who is 52 this year, is an artist at his peak: confident, serene, consummately lyrical. Exhibitionism and pretence are antithetical to his musical personality. He seldom insists and never overwhelms. His Orphic magnetism invites rather than commands rapt attention. Our reward is a vision of musical architecture second to none and a tender, profoundly cultivated sensibility from which flows unimpeded, pure as a spring."

Patrick Rucker - International Record Review - September 2014


"... This CD is the sixth in a worthy serie in which Haefliger juxtaposes Beethoven with related composers, a refreshing change to the stultifying custom of single-composer recitals and CDs. Further variety comes from four of Luciano Berio’s Six Encores, written between 1965 and 1990. These are not encores in the sense of virtuoso displays, but rather Italianare examples of meditative lyricism with sound laboratory  research effects that will appeal to brainier fans of contemporary music. Haefliger renders them with clarity and a sobriety of purpose that recalls the gavity of his much-admired father, tenor Ernst Haefliger (1919-2007)."   ****

Benjamin Ivry - International Piano magazine - September/October 2014


 "... A uncluttered, beautifully wrought finale concludes one of Haefliger’s most satisfying releases."

Jed Distler - Gramophone magazine - August 2014


                      Performance *****          Recording *****

"...This is a disc to give balm to the soul."

Michael Tanner - BBC Music magazine - August 2014


"... an interestingly put together recital programme in which the Beethoven and Schumann works are interleavedwith the four miniatures named after the elements of the ancient world - earth, air, fire and water ... Tken as a whole, they link together a very satidfying sequence ..."  ***
