Haydn: Piano Sonatas, Vol. 5 – Jean-Efflam Bavouzet

We have now reached Volume 5 in Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s project to record the complete piano sonatas of Haydn. Many leading pianists have tackled these, at times technically challenging classical sonatas, but in Bavouzet’s own words, this is a composer who always left the door open for new interpretations: ‘One often forgets how little information Haydn left in the text of his keyboard works: few instructions on nuance and phrasing, and very minimal tempo indications. Playing them is all the more fascinating for that, but it is also arduous and even risky for the performer, who must, even more than usual, create his or her own world and internal logic, only hoping – in the absence of tangible proof – that he or she is not straying too far from the composer’s intentions, forever out of reach.’

This series has been going from strength to strength, every volume receiving consistently excellent reviews.



"... Bavouzet makes a convincing case for the entire set to be heard at one sitting, making this dics fone of my favourite Hayden CD’s

James J North - Fanfare - September/October 1964


                    ***** - Essential

"Now that Bavouzet’s haydn sonata series has reached volume five, its time to state that it will be the best complete series in a modern digital recording. bavouzet makes his contribution with so much fun, joy and tongue-in-cheek attitude, yet he understands how impressive these sonatas are..."

Marius Dawn - The Pianist magazine - October/November 2013


“...Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s stylish and joyous playing brings out all the charm of Haydn’s piano sonatas. It’s a benchmark recording.”   ****

“... lively and nuanced pianism in translucent recorded sound.”
 
Bayan Northcott – BBC Music magazine – June 2013
 

“...These are landmark recordings, thanks to the French pianist’s stylistic command and sheer delight in the music... Bavouzet reveals the music’s expressive charm and craftsman-like ingenuity.” ****

Andrew Clark – Financial Times – 6 April 2013
