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

We have now reached Volume 5 in Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s project to record the complete piano sonatas of Haydn.

Many leading pianists have tackled these, at times technically challenging classical sonatas, but in Bavouzet’s own words, this is a composer who always left the door open for new interpretations: ‘One often forgets how little information Haydn left in the text of his keyboard works: few instructions on nuance and phrasing, and very minimal tempo indications. Playing them is all the more fascinating for that, but it is also arduous and even risky for the performer, who must, even more than usual, create his or her own world and internal logic, only hoping – in the absence of tangible proof – that he or she is not straying too far from the composer’s intentions, forever out of reach.’

This series has been going from strength to strength, every volume receiving consistently excellent reviews.

“These are landmark recordings, thanks to the French pianist’s stylistic command and sheer delight in the music. The latest disc is dominated by the jolly Sonata No 15 in E, the tripping ornamental motifs of which tumble out with a mixture of nonchalance and elegance...Bavouzet reveals the music’s expressive charm and craftsman-like ingenuity.” Financial Times, 6th April 2013 ****

“lively and nuanced pianism in translucent recorded sound” BBC Music Magazine, June 2013 ****

“Bavouzet continues to demonstrate his deep engagement with the sonatas through his ever-questing insistence on viewing the score merely as a working document” Gramophone Magazine, July 2013

“As each volume appears, Bavouzet goes from strength to strength...As in the previous volumes, one gets the immediate impression that he clearly loves these works and plays them with great commitment.” MusicWeb International, 27th June 2013

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, has recently presented excerpts in Sydney and London, and has been recording the works using period instruments from the unique collection of early keyboards at the ANU School of Music, where Lancaster is professor of music. Critically acclaimed as ‘a genius of the fortepiano’, Dr 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, embellishing as he goes, and 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.

“In one particular way, these performances of Haydn's Sonata Nos 59 in E-flat Major, 54 in G Major, 47 in B Minor and 40 in E-flat Major are the antithesis of scholarly. Well, they are scholarly in the best sense, but are also free of any stuffiness or dryness, as Geoffrey Lancaster unleashes two reproductions of late 18th¬century fortepianos to bring out as much of the diversion, wit and unceasing drama that can be summoned from these scores. These are very free readings, seeking to express Haydn's amazing reservoir of lively inventiveness. As part of his musical adventure, Lancaster reverts to a very old musical practice of adding a short Prelude before each sonata. Some of these are based on old original preludes from other hands; some are composed by Lancaster himself at the keyboard. And in another reversion to historical practice, he resiles from a literal reading of the score to add appropriate improvised embellishments.” Anthony Clarke, Limelight, January 2012

“Lancaster’s brand of lyricism is unusual: hard-edged, hard-fought and hard-won, making for a different kind of expressiveness. It’s not beautiful but it holds your attention. A continually wayward individuality is stressed.” MusicWeb International, July 2012

Anne Queffélec is among the most popular pianists of her generation, appreciated for the diversity of her repertoire, as her impressive discography testifies. In addition to the French repertoire, she has became particularly known for her performance of works by Mozart and Scarlatti. Her recordings include works of J.S. Bach, Scarlatti, Liszt, Chopin, Schubert, Mozart, Fauré and Debussy.

“A French pupil of Alfred Brendel, Queffelec plays with a delightful lightness of touch, coupled with intellectual penetration. She shares the master’s love of Haydn...though Queffelec’s playing is more feminine and feline.” The Times, 5th December 2009 ****

“Anne Queffélec… uses the full resources of the piano and her response to the Variations is both thoughtful and richly analytical. She is totally involved, and is just as involved in her interpretation of the Sonata traditionally considered Haydn's last but placed third from the end by scholar Georg Feder. Fine rhythm and articulation illuminate her playing.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2010

“Everything in this Haydn collection is cleanly articulated, judiciously pedalled and expressively varied in colour and touch.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2010 ***

Carole Cerasi (fortepiano & clavichord)

“Her readings cover a full gamut of expression from the poised to the brilliant, making much of the colour contrasts offered by her main instrument, a fine-toned c1795 Schantz fortepiano...Stylistically her added decorations are always well considered.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2010 ****

“…like many players approaching the instrument from the direction of the harpsichord, she appreciates its special qualities and realises them with a relish and originality that releases this wonderful music from the "warm-up" status it often endures in "traditional" piano circles. Quite simply, she restores its colour, expressiveness and grandeur. This is fortepiano-playing of true distinction.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2010

“Cerasi matches Haydn's invention in articulation of infinite variety, judicious use of the secretive timbre of the fortepiano's soft pedal, and subtle application of rubato.” The Independent on Sunday, 3rd January 2010
