Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Many leading pianists have tackled the at-times technically challenging classical sonatas of Haydn, but in Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's own words, this is a composer who always left the door open for new interpretations: "One often forgets how little information Haydn left in the text of his keyboard works... playing them is all the more fascinating for that."

Financial Times, 6th April 2013
These are landmark recordings, thanks to the French pianist's stylistic command and sheer delight in the music. The latest disc is dominated by the jolly Sonata No 15 in E, the tripping ornamental motifs of which tumble out with a mixture of nonchalance and elegance...Bavouzet reveals the music's expressive charm and craftsman-like ingenuity.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2013
Lively and nuanced pianism in translucent recorded sound.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2013
Bavouzet continues to demonstrate his deep engagement with the sonatas through his ever-questing insistence on viewing the score merely as a working document.

MusicWeb International, 27th June 2013
As each volume appears, Bavouzet goes from strength to strength...As in the previous volumes, one gets the immediate impression that he clearly loves these works and plays them with great commitment.
