HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Joseph Haydn – Piano Sonatas 37, 40, 52 (Brendel)

Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this gem
Haydn’s piano sonatas are relatively obscure yet the music is beautiful. Perhaps some of it goes back to its historical context as Haydn composed when the keyboard technology was transitioning from the harpsichord to piano. Alfred Brendel offers fine performances. For listeners who enjoy piano sonatas by Beethoven and Mozart and listen to the solo piano works of Brahms and Chopin, this fine album fits right in. These sonatas are played flawlessly. Each enlightens me about Papa Haydn’s genius, but the pianist must reveal that genius with the composer’s passion and compassion, as well as his own, and Alfred Brendel does so…………so magnificently.
