Hi-Res Booklet
Even a quarter-century ago, Haydn's piano sonatas were, except for a few of the large, Beethovenian works from the end of his life, rarely played. That's changed in a big way, but even among the crowd of recent recordings, those of Jean-Efflam Bavouzet have stood out. With this release, he reaches volume nine, and the virtues of his set are especially clear. The program this time around does not include any of those big late sonatas. The latest works included date from the early 1780s, but that's the great virtue of Bavouzet's set: he finds the humor and ingenuity in almost every Haydn sonata. Consider the central movement of the Piano Sonata in A major, Hob. 16/26, marked "Minuetto al rovesico," or minuet in reverse, where the theme is treated palindromically; Bavouzet pitches this unexpected development with just the right level of humor. In general, his approach is light, with even the more melancholy slow movement seeming to have a wink and a nod when things threaten to get too dark. He brings his trademark cleanness to even the Sturm und Drang sonatas of the 1770s, Hob. 16/26 and Hob. 16/29. He also finds just as much cleverness in the Keyboard Sonata No. 2 in C major, Hob. 16/7, probably one of the first mature pieces Haydn composed, as in later works; indeed, it has probably never sounded quite so characteristic of its composer. Bavouzet fools with the musical text a bit, adorning repeats and holding some of the codas for the second repeat, but he makes a strong case for these moves. His Yamaha piano in the acoustically perfect space of Suffolk's Potton Hall is an engineering work of art in itself and contributes greatly to the success of this major Haydn release. © TiVo
