Released in the 200th anniversary year of Haydn’s death, this new release features pianist Tzimon Barto playing a selection of the great Classical composer’s piano sonatas.

Tzimon Barto is celebrated for his “refreshing” approach (American Record Guide) to known repertoire.

Barto’s highly personal approach to these works – which he has devoted himself to for much of his career – enables the listeners to make their own “unexpected encounters” with these works. Making no attempt to be “historically correct,” Barto focuses instead on his discovery of impressionistic elements, as well as inspiration drawn from theatre and painting of the period.

Tzimon Barto is recognised as one of the most radiant and unique personalities in the music world. His two previous recordings for Ondine – keyboard pieces by Rameau (ODE1067-2) and piano works by Ravel (ODE10952) – have received high levels of acclaim; critics have hailed Barto’s musical maturity, superb technique, and endless colour palette.

Gramophone Magazine

February 2010

“The first three sonatas… are written for the harpsichord but Barto doesn’t imitate the instrument. Instead he uses the resources of the piano to express what Haydn implied. Ductile sonorities rather than sharp transients fill out the fabric and repeats are varied though changes of touch rather than decoration. No 10's origin is considered doubtful but Barto's interpretation is of a scope that suggests the real thing.”
