While, unlike Mozart, Haydn never made a living as a keyboard soloist, he nevertheless came nearest to Mozart in the best known of his keyboard concertos, No. 11 in D major. First performed in Paris in 1784 this is a work of the composer’s maturity, with strikingly dramatic contrasts, an expressive slow movement and an infectious Hungarian Rondo. Although slight by comparison, if not in craftsmanship, Concerto No. 3 is notable for its wistful slow movement and lively Finale, while Concerto No. 4, with its elaborate solo part, includes a dramatic and sombre Andante cantabile, and an exuberant Rondo.

Gramophone Magazine

September 2008

“The young German pianist Sebastian Knauer gives sprightly and sensitive accounts of all four concertos, dancing nimbly through Haydn's long stretches of toccata-style passagework and spinning a pure, eloquent line in the slow movements.”

International Piano

“In Knauer such music has an ideal interpreter... Naxos’s balance and sound are as exemplary as the performances.”
