Haydn - Six Keyboard Works
Played on Historic Instruments
On this recording the sonatas in D, G, C and F are performed on a fortepiano by Johann Schantz now in the Holburne Museum in Bath. It is thought to have been built in 1795 and is one of four surviving examples; there are two in Vienna and another in a private collection. The E-flat and A-flat major sonatas are performed on a delightful unnamed fortepiano in the remarkable private collection of Michael Turner. The instrument, a wreck when first discovered, was restored by Michael Cole. The instrument is thought to be Northern Italian and around 1790 or even earlier.
“Richard Lester, captured in a generous recording, is content to let the charm and wit of the music speak for itself without being overly interventionist. This can be effective in fast outer movements, which have an infectious energy.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2009

Haydn Sinfonietta Wien (playing on period instruments), Manfred Huss
Haydn Sinfonietta Wien and Manfred Huss have possibly done more than any other performers when it comes to spreading the music of Haydn’s earliest years, resurrecting scores which for decades and even centuries have been lying forgotten in archives.
Previous collections have included the 6-disc set of Scherzandi, Baryton Octets and Lira Concerti (BISCD1796/98) and the 2-disc set of the complete overtures (BISCD1818). Forming a worthy finale to this series of re-releases, the present set of five discs includes all of the extant early Divertimenti by Haydn: works composed in the 1750s and 60s for ensembles of winds and strings in various combinations and typically scored for between 5-9 players.
