Haydn: Piano ConcertosJean-Efflam Bavouzet, Manchester Camerata, Gábor Takács-Nagy

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet is recognised today as one of the world’s finest interpreters of Haydn’s piano works, International Piano describing him as ‘Haydn’s greatest contemporary keyboard exponent’. In the first five volumes of his ongoing series devoted to Haydn’s sonatas he has been applauded for his intelligent musicianship, crisp technique, and sheer sense of joy in the music. In this concerto recording he performs in partnership with the conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy, the two united by an admiration for Haydn’s infectious good humour and art of the unexpected.

Of the twelve keyboard concertos carrying Haydn’s name, the third, fourth, and eleventh, recorded here, are the best known. The publication history of the rest casts doubt on their authenticity; many imitations were attributed to Haydn by publishers wanting to cash in on his wild popularity in Europe during his life.

The concertos in F and G major are early works, in an early style, simply constructed, with graceful and clear keyboard writing. One finds plenty of Haydnesque charm and spirit in these scores, both of which feature specially touching slow movements. By contrast, the Concerto in D major is a work of the composer’s maturity, full of strikingly dramatic contrasts and characteristic wit. Certainly accounting for much of its enduring popularity, the infectious Hungarian Rondo finale brings the concerto to a rousing conclusion.



 “Jean-Efflam Bavouzet adds witty ornamentation, throws in out-of-period cadenzas, and plays with irresistible exuberance. It is a disc that is hard to play without breaking into a smile.” *****

Richard Fairman – Financial Times – 5 September 2014


                         Editor’s Choice (Orchestral Section)

“…He [Bavouzet] now presents the three authentic keyboard concertos in performances that demonstrate his innate love and understanding of this music in performances of the expected vivacity and insight…”

David Threasher – Gramophone magazine – September 2014
