Geoffrey Lancaster (fortepiano)

Tall Poppies and fortepianist Geoffrey Lancaster continue to journey through Joseph Haydn’ s complete keyboard sonatas. Lancaster presented the complete cycle of 52 sonatas in concert in Melbourne, Perth and Canberra to mark the Haydn Bicentenary in 2009, and has been recording the works using period instruments from the unique collection of early keyboards at the ANU School of Music, where Lancaster used to be professor of music. He is now based at Edith Cowan University in Western Australia.

Critically acclaimed as ‘a genius of the fortepiano’ , Lancaster is one of Australia’s most distinguished keyboardists and was the first Australian to win a major international keyboard competition. His honours include the ARIA Best Classical Album, Gramophone Best Recording, the Sounds Australian Award, the Order of Australia, and ACT Australian of the Year.

This series reveals the genius of Haydn. Lancaster plays with amiable virtuosity, finding all the latent humour and passion in these magnificent sonatas. His historically-informed performances bring clarity, originality, and insightful musical understanding to these works, the fortepianos responding with gusto to the drama and emotion in the music.

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

Lars Haugbro (piano)

Fortepiano Mc Nulty - copy of Anton Walter (ca.1780)

The Sonata in C Major was part of my recital debut, and it was also the first work by a composer of the Classical period in which I sensed an almost verbal expression behind the many scales and arpeggios. It was in this sonata I discovered that Haydn spoke more than he sang, something I was to find confirmed many years later, while working on my Ph.D in performance practice.

Andante and Variations in F Minor was part of the first important solo recital I held when I returned to performing — this time in a wheelchair — following a serious accident. It was a work that indelibly etched itself in my mind from the first time I heard it as a student. It is one of those works that is known simply from the designation “Variations in F Minor”. One hardly need mention the name of the composer. It is certainly one of musical history’s most important works for piano, and it crowns Haydn’s oeuvre for solo piano.

All four works on this CD can, in principle, be played on harpsichord, fortepiano, clavichord or modern piano. The sonatas were written over a period of 20 years at the end of the eighteenth century. At that time, the new, exciting instrument was the fortepiano. This did not mean that people would simply discard the costly harpsichords and clavichords they already had. Well aware of this, Haydn often wrote in the score that it could be played on different keyboard instruments. I think it is safe to say, though, that from around 1780 Haydn was aiming for a fortepiano idiom. Lars Haugbro

Anne-Marie McDermott (piano)

This new recording of Haydn's two great piano concertos accompanies five of Haydn's finest piano sonatas, in brilliant performances by the American pianist Anne-Marie McDermott The G major Piano Concerto features cadenzas, composed specifically for this recording, by the leading American composer, Charles Wuorinen. Mr. Wuorinen writes: “I've long admired Anne-Marie McDermott's unsurpassed performances of Haydn. Her understanding of his music is superb and her playing of it so apt and expressive that I could not resist her invitation to provide cadenzas for one of Haydn's concerti. It was a joy to write them, and reproducing my own thoughts in the language of this ancient composer was exhilarating. It goes without saying that their realization in sound is exactly what I had intended.”

“McDermott relishes Haydn's fingery writing in this selection of sonatas and concertos, vividly inflecting phrases and taking an imaginative approach to ornaments and dynamics. She sprinkles a healthy helping of paprika into the Hungarian episodes in the finale of the D major Concerto.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2015

“McDermott's chosen tempos for most of the outer movements are fast…no matter: she has the fingers to match, and has no need to deviate from her strictness of tempo. However, the often ruminative slow movements on the sonatas are given with considerable intensity and beautifully sustained concentration, as if she is resolved to expose to the full the inherent pathos of Haydn's writing.” International Record Review, April 2015
