HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI) Joseph Haydn – Piano Sonatas Hob. XVI 20, 37, 52 (Weissenberg)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Trottar for more Haydn
This is an excellent performance by an underappreciated pianist. Alexis (formerly “Sigi”) Weissenberg, a student of such eminences as Artur Schnabel, Wanda Landowska, and Olga Samaroff (formerly Lucy Hickenlooper from Texas) has been around a long time (he is in his mid-seventies). Weissenberg’s superb articulation enables full appreciations of Haydn’s rapid passagework.

Many thanks to our friend Trottar for this wonderful record
When we discuss Haydn and Mozart and late Beethoven it would be better if we dropped the idea of sonata form as a certain shape into which the music was poured, and thought instead of the ideals that are involved. Haydn and Mozart both wanted a piece that started from a point of stability and became increasingly dramatic with a climax three-quarters of the way through when the music reached a moment of greatest tension…

Thank you very much Jean-Luc
Beeing myself Rachmaninov 😉 I cannot comment properly….
OK, jokes apart, I want to give the ball to you all, because I’ve heard so many interpreters of Rachmaninov’s concerti, that I’m afraid, I wouldn’t be neutral. Let me say, this is a melanconic Rachmaninov played by a very young Ashkenazy and the sound is quiet good. Enjoy!
