Denis Kozhukhin "is clearly a formidable pianist with strong interpretative ideas to match his fine technique" said the Guardian of his debut recording of Prokofiev’s three ‘War Sonatas’.

"A stunning tour de force" said the BBC Music Magazine reviewing the same CD, "I’ve never heard so much revelatory detail in Prokofiev’s triptych of dark and painful masterpieces. Kozhukhin has a way of bring out the details of the inner parts, or even a usually inconsequential – seeming bass line, that highlights the drama instead of detracting from it…" For his second ONYX CD, Kozhukhin turns to Joseph Haydn, whose piano sonatas have been unjustly neglected and yet contain some of his most forward-looking music. In the selection here, the worlds of gallant classical style rub shoulders with sturm und drang, and in the major D work the influence Haydn had upon his wayward and headstrong young pupil Beethoven is clear.

“Kozhukhin proves himself an incisive and thoughtful interpreter of Haydn. His grace, lyrical fluency and sensitivity to every aspect of these works is impressive, humour never overdone, with a lithe energy throughout.” Classical Music, January 2015

“[Kozhukhin] is really at his best in Hob.XVI/24 (No. 39), spaciously expressive in the Allegro first movement, melancholy in the Baroque-type Adagio and pointedly rhythmic in the final Presto.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2015

“On the face of it, these are rather 'straight' readings, meticulously fingered and judiciously paced; Kozhukin never rushes detail or stabs at the keyboard for emphasis...Yet his apparent restraint discloses an intent thoughtfulness and a subtlety of dynamic shading through which the highly contrasted characters of Haydn's various movements emerge all the more compellingly.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2015 ****

“exquisitely refined playing...about as close to the perfect ideal in this music as it is possible to imagine...A defining moment in Classical pianism.” International Record Review, March 2015

Marc-André Hamelin’s first set of Haydn Piano Sonatas was Hyperion’s best-selling release of 2007, and had the critics jostling to acclaim his performances in the highest terms, in particular his expression of the ‘physical exhilaration of Haydn’s playful inspiration in a way unmatched by any pianist past or present’. His second volume, released in a year where new Haydn recordings are prominent, should surely match the critical and commercial success of the first.

Some of Haydn’s most alluring and appealing keyboard works are recorded here. The surprising (to some) emotional range of the composer is fully evident in the extraordinarily sensitive and intimate Sonata in E flat major No 49, written for Maria Anna von Genzinger, and the profoundly felt Andante con variazioni in F minor, the composition of which coincided with her death.

“Hamelin is especially compelling in the great C major (No 48) and E flat major (No 49) sonatas, works that rank with the finest creations of the Viennese Classical period. An unmissable bargain at two-discs-for-the-price of one.” Sunday Times, 2nd August 2009 ****

“In the sonatas proper...he is a model of correctness, with enough wit, exuberance and the most exquisite lightness of touches to keep the music buoyant.” The Guardian, 31st July 2009 ****

“…a luminous evenness of touch and a wonderful lightness in his decorations and runs. …his account of the Adagio of the E flat, HobXVI:49, has a tenderness of its own. And while his account of the unsettling F minor Variations knocks a startling three minutes off the timing of Gary Cooper's account reviewed here in the July issue, it proves quite as intense.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2009 ****

“…Hamelin exhibits a coruscating wit and brilliance known to few pianists. When have you head dotted rhythms more sprucely articulated than in No 35's finale, or wondered how terms such as vivace can take on a whole new meaning given such rapier reflexes and musical sheen?” Gramophone Magazine, October 2009

Joseph Haydn, one of the most influential composers in classical music is famous for his symphonies and his chamber music. His piano sonatas are in our daily concert life only some little pieces to start the evening with.

That´s why there are only very few complete recordings of all the sonatas in their original form.

We think it is about time to correct that, to produce a new complete recording of these wonderful pieces that were a massive inspiration for Mozart, Beethoven an many others.

It will take us 6 years to complete this edition with 11 CDs.

Dmitri Bashkirov (piano)

Firma Melodiya presents an album of the remarkable Russian pianist Dmitri Bashkirov.

“Bashkirov moved from Tbilisi to Moscow in the 1950s to study at the conservatory, and his first performance caused a real sensation”, remembered the prominent organist Harry Grodberg. After he graduated the Moscow Conservatory and completed his postgraduate course under Alexander Goldenweiser, Bashkirov received the first prize of the Long-Thibault International Competition in Paris. The piano school of Heinrich Neuhaus had an unconditional influence on the young pianist.

“This is a romantic pianist … of modern formation.

Both dreaminess and tenderness are characteristic of him. But what he has on the foreground when he plays is intensity of feeling”, wrote one of the music critics about Dmitri Bashkirov. Combining impeccable technical virtuosity with emotional depth, brilliant artistry with the skill of a dramatist performer, he mastered an extensive concert repertoire and spent a lot of time in studio as well recording for Melodiya and later for the biggest European labels. Bashkirov played music of the romantic composers and French impressionists with particular inspiration, but his interpretations of Prokofiev were also especially impressive, and the classical harmonies of Haydn and Mozart were followed by sonorous energy of Rachmaninoff and sharp distinctness of Shchedrin.

The album includes recordings of works of Haydn, Schubert, Brahms, Liszt, Grieg, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and Shchedrin made by Dmitri Bashkirov in 1957 to 1972.

Piano Sonata No. 59 in E flat major, Hob.XVI:49


Famed for his clarity of line and purity of tone, Gottlieb Wallisch moves from Mozart to his contemporary Haydn for his fourth recording with Linn.

Wallisch launched his international career by winning the ‘Joseph Haydn Prize’ as well as first prize at the prestigious Stravinsky Awards at the age of just sixteen.

He celebrated Haydn’s anniversary year in 2009 by giving a critically acclaimed cycle of concerts in the Musikverein, Vienna dedicated to the composer.

Haydn’s famous London Sonatas can be viewed as the distillation of the composer’s entire sonata-writing experience; Gottlieb perfectly captures his characteristic humour, energy and spiritedness.

Sonata No. 60 was written for an instrument of greater tonal range than the Viennese instruments of the day, with a wider palette of specified dynamic possibilities and pedal effects.

With a striking two-movement format, asymmetrical phrases and unusual accents Sonata No. 61 was ahead of its time, breaking the limits of traditional sonata form.

Often described as a symphony for the piano, Sonata No. 62 has frequently been praised as Haydn’s ‘opus summum’ due to its large-scale form, diversity of expression and its virtuoso requirements. Named a Steinway Artist in 2012, Gottlieb Wallisch is a respected artist in the Viennese piano tradition. Gottlieb Wallisch has performed with many leading orchestras including Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the London Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. He has performed at prestigious London venues Wigmore Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall.

“In the F minor Variations, Wallisch's poised pianism, suave tempo relationships and keen attention to the music's bountiful harmonic inventiveness offer much to savour...Better still is Wallisch's fluent, rhythmically pointed and heartfelt rendition of the Andante in the remote key of E major.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2014

“His technique and touch are immaculate, his tempos are judicious and, without over-emphasis or eccentricity, he always phrases meaningfully...And his account of the alternatively plaintive and fanciful, but ultimately tragic Variations in F minor is the more powerful for refraining from over-milking the pathos at the end.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2014 ****

The distant Revolution?

Vienna 1789? That was the year of Paris, the storming of the Bastille and the French Revolution. The Hamburg pianist Sebastian Knauer makes it clear on his new CD that there were things happening in Vienna that year too. The great Viennese Classical composers were busy writing music that shows how fast things were moving at that time. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed his last Piano Concerto, K595, while his "successor" Ludwig van Beethoven was writing the first of his piano concertos, which we now know as his Second Piano Concerto, op. 19 – both in B flat major and both with interesting features to contrast and compare. It would be a mistake to look for the spirit of the Revolution in these works; that wind of change was not yet blowing through Europe. The ideas of the Enlightenment were already fermenting in people's minds, however. So it is no accident that this musical succession should involve two composers who illustrate in their careers the transition from the professional musicianship of Court lackeys to the amateur music‐making of the bourgeoisie.

Joseph Haydn's Piano Sonata in E flat major, Hob.XVI:49 was also written in the year of the Revolution and offers instructive proof that the eldest of the Viennese Classical triumvirate is often closer to Beethoven than to Mozart. For that reason, it is convincingly placed in the middle of this programme. As Sebastian Knauer shows, the customary serial arrangement of the three composers all too soon conceals the parallel developments of that seminal period around 1789. Sebastian Knauer has been able to call upon reliable partners for his latest recording: in the Zurich Chamber Orchestra under Sir Roger Norrington – following their highly acclaimed joint project "Bach & Sons" – he has found kindred spirits who endorse his commitment to the historically informed approach on modern instruments. Their success is audible: when popular classics are so intelligently combined and compellingly presented as they are here, we suddenly (and refreshingly!) hear familiar works with new ears.

“Norrington conducts perspicaciously, eschewing throughout the didacticism and emotional disengagement that has so often blocked his inner vision. Sebastian Knauer complements, never circumscribed but never violating artistic integrity either...Knauer does Mozart proud. Beethoven too.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
