[ Hyperion / CD ]
Release Date: Monday 1 April 2013
Marc-André Hamelin has proved himself-in three lauded volumes of Haydn's piano sonatas-to be a formidable Haydn pianist, combining style, exuberance and dazzling technique with a palpable sense of joy in the music.
Now he has recorded the composer's three most popular concertos.
This release is the fruit of a partnership with the award-winning Canadian chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy and their director Bernard Labadie, whose previous recordings for Virgin Classics and other labels have received the highest critical acclaim.
Keyboard Concerto No. 11 in D major, HobXVIII:11
