JOSEF HAYDN
Emanuel Ax plays Haydn
Emanuel Ax (piano) / Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra

[ Sony Classical / 4 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Saturday 20 January 2018

"His interpretation always sounds as if it is felt from within the notes rather than applied to them..a performance of unusual beauty and grandeur." (Gramophone)

"There is no period-instrument rethinking here; instead, big-boned, handsomely played interpretations bring out Haydn's pre-Beethoven side" BBC Music

"here's a new CD that deserves to find a wider audience for Haydn's intimate but inspired sonatas; it's from Emanuel Ax, who manages to have a foot in each camp without compromising either. It's a modern concert grand, but Ax is also an expert interpreter on fortepiano, and he captures something of the sonority of the earlier instruments in the way he plays here...a crispness of attack and articulation that's reminiscent even of a harpsichord, yet with the sustain of the modern piano to warm the sound, without losing any of the brilliance of his fingerwork." BBC Music
