Compared to the far more popular cycles by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven, the piano sonatas of Franz Joseph Haydn have for too long occupied an inferior position among listeners, though they are highly esteemed by pianists who know their importance and greatness. Musically, Haydn's sonatas are formally innovative and rich in invention and expression, and they require great skill and taste to be performed effectively. This is perhaps why only the most confident and capable of pianists, such as Marc-André Hamelin, Jenö Jandó, John McCabe, and Rudolf Buchbinder, attempt to record complete sets. Add to this select company the name of Ekaterina Derzhavina, a Russian pianist who has established a fine reputation for her interpretations of Bach, and who now demonstrates her thorough mastery of Haydn. Playing with clean lines and a refined touch, Derzhavina creates the effect of Classical period practice on a modern piano, and by avoiding the pedals, her sound is crisp and intimate, without the quirkiness of a fortepiano's tone quality. These recordings were made between 1993 and 2008, and Profil's audio quality is first-rate, with close microphone placement and a pleasantly resonant acoustic that makes the music especially appealing.

Hi-Res Booklet
This perfectly classical new version of The Creation by Haydn was recorded in two concerts given at the Jesse H. Jones Hall in Houston, on 27 September and 2 October 2016. Subtitled in English, these concerts also saw exhibits of cheerful drawings by the schoolchildren of Houston, who imagined whales jumping in the water beneath a starry sky. While the record doesn't contain the pictures, it does capture the festive and awestruck atmosphere of the night with conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada. Born in 1977, in Medellín, Colombia, this violinist and conductor went to study in Vienna at the age of 20, quickly becoming a sought-after artist. In 2009, he took charge of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, and then became the first guest conductor of the London Philharmonic, and took the post of musical director of the Houston Symphony Orchestra in Texas. Playing the game of musical chairs which is so popular these days, Orozco-Estrada will conduct the Vienna Symphony Orchestra from the 2021-2022 season, taking over from Philippe Jordan, who will himself move on to be the musical director of the opera house in the Austrian capital. Made sublime by the excellent sound recording by the engineers at Pentatone, this recording of The Creation offers a delicious taste of the Texan orchestra's exquisite wind soloists, the fluidity of the string section and the excellence of the Houston Symphony Chorus, whose substantial numbers don't in any way reduce the perfect clarity of this fervent performance, with highlights from the three soloists Nicole Heaston, Peter Rose and Toby Spencer. © François Hudry/Qobuz
