Notes & Reviews:

While, unlike Mozart, Haydn never made a living as a keyboard soloist, he nevertheless came nearest to Mozart in the best known of his keyboard concertos, 'No. 11 in D major'. First performed in Paris in 1784 this is a work of the composer's maturity, with strikingly dramatic contrasts, an expressive slow movement and an infectious 'Hungarian Rondo'. Although slight by comparison, if not in craftsmanship, 'Concerto No. 3' is notable for its wistful slow movement and lively 'Finale', while 'Concerto No. 4', with its elaborate solo part, includes a dramatic and sombre 'Andante cantabile', and an exuberant 'Rondo'.

Classic FM
Knauer's earlier disc of Haydn concertos comes highly recommended.
