About

Alongside an internationally acclaimed celebration of Debussyís centenary, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet continues his sumptuous journey through Haydn, the instalments consistently praised for their intelligent approach and clear and vivid interpretations.

Recorded on a modern Yamaha CFX in the warm acoustic of Potton Hall in Suffolk, the series has now reached Volume 7, which showcases several rarely heard sonatas, some of which have been considered of dubious authenticity or outright apocryphal. With the exception of No.13 (Hob. XVI:6), absolutely and unarguably authentic, these sonatas survive only in the form of copies, and to establish a chronology is difficult, even impossible.

But through Jean-Efflam Bavouzetís playing, all these pieces are revealed in their purest essence and diversity, from the energetic, witty, and ironic to the graceful, tender, and intimate.

Reviews

Jean-Efflam Bavouzetís series of Haydnís piano sonatas reaches Vol 7, borne aloft by the momentum of almost unanimously laudatory reviews and a string of accolades including a brace of Gramophone Editorís Choices over the past eight years. Thereís no sign of a mid-series lull, either, on the new disc, which, like its predecessors, offers listening delight from first note to last. ... There is still some way to go but this volume is another stepping stone towards what must surely end up as a major modern recording landmark in the Haydn discography.  David Threasher
