Notes & Reviews:

Andreas Haefliger continues his fascinating, thought-provoking, and captivating Perspectives series, in which he juxtaposes the Piano Sonatas of Beethoven with other composers, casting an enlightening glow on the works that one would not detect if played in isolation. On Perspectives 6, themes of humanity, nature, and love run through a program emphatically to be listened to rather than analyzed intellectually. Haefliger opens with Beethoven's early Piano Sonata No. 10, Op. 14, and then segues into two of Berio's seldom-heard encores, "Erdenklavier" and "Wasserklavier." He emerges to perform Beethoven's late Piano Sonata No. 30, Op. 109, followed by two more miniatures by Berio, "Luftklavier" and "Feuerklavier." The album culminates with Schumann's great Fantasy in C.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Standard-setting Beethoven... Few 'Hammerklavier' performances are this complete, taking in the big picture as well as the tiniest details.

The Guardian, 22nd May 2014
Taken as a whole, they link together a very satisfying sequence, though one that is more memorable as a totality and for Haefliger's performances of the Berio pieces...than for the individual accounts of the repertoire pieces.
