Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The request for Haydn to write The Seven Last Words came from a priest in Cadiz to mark Good Friday. Setting the words of Christ gave Haydn the basis for the construction of seven slow and meditative movements to be played by the orchestra as the Bishop descended from the pulpit to pray. The following year Haydn arranged the work for string quartet and a version for keyboard was prepared. To this version, which he did not prepare himself, Haydn gave his wholehearted approval noting that it was ‘very good and made with particular care’. Hungarian pianist and Liszt Academy, Budapest professor Jeno Jando has recorded for Naxos all the piano concertos and sonatas of Mozart. Other recordings for the label include the concertos of Grieg and Schumann as well as Rachmaninov’s Second Concerto and Paganini Rhapsody and the complete piano sonatas of Haydn and Beethoven. He has performed and recorded a wide repertoire of chamber music, in addition to his recording of the complete piano music of Bartok.
