Hyperion’s Record of the Month is the third double-volume release in Marc-André Hamelin’s much-praised series of Haydn’s keyboard sonatas. Haydn wrote around sixty keyboard sonatas and this selection of eleven focuses on those from the 1770s, including the great C minor sonata from the composer’s ‘Sturm und Drang’ period, with its dynamic contrasts and virtuoso demands. These are bookended by three from Haydn’s earliest output from the 1750s, most likely penned for his young female pupils to play, and the D major sonata written during the second of the mature composer’s triumphant London visits in 1794.

In all these fascinating, idiosyncratic works, Marc-André Hamelin wears his renowned virtuosity lightly, while playing with understated wit and the elegant, immaculate musicianship that has come to define one of the greatest pianists of our time.

“the playing is outstanding for its crystalline tone, springy rhythms, lively tempos and integral handling of ornamentation...Hamelin is often at his most brilliant where Haydn is at his most eccentric” BBC Music Magazine, July 2012 ****

“The most immediately striking feature of the set is the unfailingly superb, crystalline clarity of Hamelin's sound...Here no detail is obscured and, with the exception of certain legato ligatures that Hamelin consistently chooses not to observe, articulation is within the realm of what Haydn's notation suggests...There is a certain stylistic cohesion to all these performances: everything is unmistakeably stamped 'Hamelin's Haydn'.” International Record Review, June 2012

“the majority of the sonatas, with their volte-face humour and open-hearted delight in the unexpected, reflect a joy in compositional wizardry. Such qualities are dazzlingly articulated by Hamelin, with one performance after another of crystalline brilliance and musicianship...These are magnificent performances and clearly a prime love for Hamelin.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2012

“Hamelin’s fluency amazes but is never ostentatious...Slow movements are delicately coloured, and there’s never a hint of indulgence. Hamelin lets Haydn do the talking.” The Arts Desk, 28th July 2012

Andante & Variations in F minor, Hob.XVII:6 (Sonata - un piccolo divertimento)


A truly invigorating new release from SOMM this month, brings us Leon McCawley in a recording of four Haydn Piano Sonatas together with the set of Variations in F minor (Sonata - Un piccolo divertimento). Siva Oke first heard Leon play Haydn during a recital for the Chopin Society and was immediately struck by the many wonderful qualities he brought to his playing which captured classical purity and pristine articulation coupled with warmth, plasticity and wit. Widely acknowledged as one of Britain's foremost pianists, McCawley has forged a highly successful career since winning First Prize in the 1993 International Beethoven Piano Competition in Vienna and Second Prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition, building on his earlier success as Winner of the Piano Section of BBC Young Musician of the Year in 1990. Since then, his impressive discography which includes the much-lauded complete cycle of Mozart Sonatas for Avie has established him as a pianist of great integrity and variety, bringing freshness and vitality to classical, romantic and 20th century repertoire. The more than 50 piano sonatas of Haydn were the first by any composer, for it was he who first applied the word 'Sonata' to a solo piano piece. Haydn's influence on Mozart, Beethoven, and all the other great composers who followed him, was hugely significant, yet it is only in quite recent times that the importance and originality of his piano sonatas have gradually come to be recognised. The Sonatas on this disc have long been part of Leon McCawley's recital repertoire. They reflect the range of Haydn's genius in the genre he himself invented, and McCawley's performances are full of the insight and virtuosity which have made him one of the major international artists currently before the public.

“Expressive rubato is always contained within a steady rhythm while the sustaining pedal is used only sparingly…[yet] it is evident that he commands dexterity of fingering to rival Marc-André Hamelin. Nor does his precision of touch preclude intensity of feeling…his account of the F Minor Variations is the stronger for his refusal to overblow its tragic coda or to milk the pathos of its closing bars” BBC Music Magazine, February 2017 ****

“I like McCawley’s vigour and spiritedness in quick numbers…you sense he’s a cultivated player with exceptional technical address, and his rhythm is immaculate whatever the tempo” Gramophone Magazine, February 2017

Haydn wrote keyboard sonatas for 'connoisseurs' and 'amateurs' throughout his career. Alternating bread-and-butter work and rich terrains of experimentation, they bear the mark of endlessly renewed invention. Alain Planès offers here a personal selection from Haydn’s output: from the experimental, sometimes anguished pieces of the 'Sturm und Drang'; through the refined and witty galanterie of the 1780’s; to the visionary masterpieces of the late sonatas, he brings out Haydn’s indefatigable spirit of adventure and infinite resource.
