Distinctions 4 étoiles du Monde de la Musique
One might suspect a five-disc collection of Haydn's complete miscellaneous keyboard works would wear out its welcome fairly quickly, but in these performances by Dutch fortepianist Bart van Oort, every single work is thoughtful, insightful, and energetic. Beyond an agile technique and flexible tone, van Oort brings enthusiasm and sympathy to Haydn's music. His Fantasy in C major, Hob XVII/4, is wildly imaginative. His Largo arranged from the String Quartet in G minor, Op. 74/3 is ineffably tender. His Variations (Fantasy) in F minor, Hob XVII/6, is controlled but passionate. His Twelve German Dances, Hob IX/12, are funny but danceable. And his Seven Last Words is unbelievably concentrated. Better yet, van Oort programs each disc to achieve both unity and diversity. Putting all the variations on one disc, all the arrangements from other works on another disc, and most but not all of the dances on a third disc, were good ideas. Placing the variations so they form a cogent group and interlarding the dance disc with marches were great ideas. The listener can thus play any given disc straight through and hear a coherent and convincing recital, no mean feat in Haydn's complete miscellaneous keyboard works. Brilliant's digital sound is clear and close and Sylvia Berry's program notes are well-written and informative. One would be wrong. © TiVo

Distinctions 5 de Diapason - 4 étoiles du Monde de la Musique
Though billed as the Complete Violin Sonatas of Sergey Prokofiev, this disc set is actually much more. Not only does it contain the two canonical sonatas for violin and piano -- the F minor originally written for violin and the D major originally written for flute but arranged by the composed for violin -- and the two canonical sonatas for solo violin or violins -- the D major for one violin and the C major for two violins -- but it also includes all the composer's other chamber works for violin -- the Five Melodies for violin and piano, the Waltz taken from the opera War and Peace, the "Russian Dance" taken from the ballet The Stone Flower, and the not-quite-minute-and-a-half, youthful Scherzo. And, fortunately, the performances are all first-rate. Russian-born violinist Tatiana Samouil and Bulgarian-born pianist Plamena Mangova are superb players on their own. With her clear tone, clean intonation, and consummate technique, Samouil is a wonderful Prokofiev player; with her crisp attack, muscular sonorities, and relentless tempos, Mangova sounds like she was raised on the composer's solo works. Together, their playing is mutually supportive but also mutually challenging. And Russian-born violinist Boris Brovtsyn is equally fine as Samouil's partner in the Two Violin Sonata. Captured in bright but full sound by producer Aline Blondiau for the Belgian label Cypres, this two-disc set may not displace justly acclaimed recordings by David Oistrakh, but it will be an excellent supplement for Oistrakh's recordings. © TiVo
