Format: Audio CD
What a fantastic reissue this is! I have owned and loved the originals for many years, they are a real treasure of my collection and I am delighted to see them available at budget price.

Haydn's Piano Sonatas are very fine works - full of his characteristic invention, melody and sheer craftsmanship and in my view are at least the equal of Mozart's Piano Sonatas. Haydn's wit and twinkle are all well in evidence, there's real drama in places and also limpid beauty - the free-standing Adagio in F which closes Disc 2 is simply exquisite, for example. It's wonderful music which I return to again and again

Alfred Brendel, of course, plays it magnificently. It is almost redundant nowadays to praise his playing because it has been so reliably excellent for well over half a century, but it is still worth doing. Technical perfection allows Brendel really to allow the music's quality to shine out in all its variety and he captures every bit of it. If there is a flaw or misjudgement anywhere on these discs I've not found it in years of listening.

I simply cannot praise this set highly enough. I genuinely think it stands comparison with Brendel's classic Beethoven and Schubert sonata cycles, and my only complaint is that he only recorded these four discs of Haydn - a Complete Cycle would have been magnificent. It's is a superlative set, now at a real bargain price. If you like Haydn or Mozart, or just want great piano music played to perfection, don't hesitate. Recommended in the warmest possible terms.

As ever with Brendel, stylish and thoroughly well played. I see someone gave the set two stars - basically because they 'couldn't get into Haydn yet'. So I suggest, listen to at least one Haydn piano sonata to make sure you like the highly classical format! If you like Haydn and like Brendel, you can't go wrong.

In his time Haydn was number one, so why is he hardly ever broadcast or heard live in the concert hall/recital room? Brendel plays these masterpieces brilliantly - I'm so glad that I purchased these two CDs.

This is an expensive disc but so well worth it. Brendel is one of THE pianists of our age and his attention to detail & expression is obvious. I had heard one of the pieces on Classic FM and just had to have it in my library - I'm so glad I did..[[ASIN:B001JJX7ME Haydn: Piano Sonatas]

A highly enjoyable recital by Alfred Brendel.
His style gives us full opportunity to listen to & appreciate the music of Haydn without distracting interpretation.
Well worth adding to your library.
