Andreas Haefliger’s provocative and trend-setting Perspectives series – juxtaposing the seminal sonatas of Beethoven within the context of works by other composers – reaches its fifth volume with two titans of the piano literature: the groundbreaking Hammerklavier Sonata, and Book One of the Swiss ‘Years of Pilgrimage’ by Franz Liszt.

Haefliger’s critically and commercially successful Perspectives series mirrors his live recitals, and vivid memories linger in audiences who have heard his numerous performances of these works throughout Europe and the USA.

Critical acclaim for Andreas Haefliger’s Perspectives series:
“(5 stars) Illuminating passion … an interpretation of formidable granitic strength.” – BBC Music Magazine

The idea of recording for CD piano-recital programmes designed for the concert hall is a good one, provided that the programmes make musical sense and that the spontaneity of live performance can be preserved. On both counts, Haefliger succeeds.” – Sunday Times

One of the most refined, thoughtful and probative pianists before the public today. Very highly recommended.” – International Record Review
