Piano Sonata No. 62 in E flat major, Hob.XVI:52

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

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 ****

“Hamelin kicks off with the late C major Sonata, H50, nailing his virtuoso credentials firmly to the mast with a mercurial account of its opening movement. Some may prefer Schiff's more measured approach, but Hamelin's playing is dazzling, and his 'presto' finale is no less witty than Schiff's.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2007 *****

“Hamelin’s gift for making light of complex textures and technically taxing writing is here harnessed to music of Classical clarity and economy. It is without doubt one of his finest achievements—and that’s saying something. This cleverly chosen selection of diverse character is played with masterly resourcefulness. Hamelin can do deadpan humour (the finale of No 40) and brilliant note-spinning (No 32) like few others, but also finds a truly affecting wistfulness in some of the slow movements. Superbly recorded, this is a life-enhancing release” Classic FM Magazine

“The ever-phenomenal Marc-André Hamelin breaks out into the light with a two-disc set of Haydn sonatas … these are astonishing performances … Hyperion’s sound and presentation are, as always, immaculate” Gramophone Magazine

“For long confined to the by-ways of the repertoire, the ever-phenomenal Marc-André Hamelin now breaks out into the light with a twodisc set of Haydn sonatas. And unlike Haydn who considered himself less than a wizard of the keyboard, Hamelin is a prodigious virtuoso. Here, he remains one, in a full if not entirely inclusive sense, often susceptible to Haydn's wit, to vertiginous music which can veer to the right just when you expect it to turn left, and vice versa.
He is brilliantly alert to the first Menuetto from No 43, to a dance at once perky and serious, almost as if the composer with his toy fanfares was trying unsuccessfully to keep a straight face. And he can be hauntingly limpid and serene, as in the alternately calm and troubled Adagio from No 46. However, in No 23 one longs for Hamelin to relax his virtuoso prowess.
Here, there is an unmistakable sense of hurry, of Haydn's riches glimpsed rather than savoured, of a composer's piquancy nearly bustled out of existence. Others, too, have achieved greater grandeur in the final E flat Sonata or made the storm clouds scud more menacingly across the B minor Sonata's finale (Andsnes, Ax and, most of all, Brendel). None the less, these are astonishing performances. Hyperion's sound and presentation are, as always, immaculate.”

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

cadenzas by Charles Wuorinen

Odense Symphony Orchestra, Scott Yoo


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
