4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Mark A. Meldon TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 14 Aug 2010
Since these recordings were made in 1990 and 1993 by Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Andreas Staier has gone on to many other exciting projects with Concerto Koln and adventures in the solo repertoire with Harmonia Mundi, for example. This certainly doesn't mean that these older recordings should be ignored - far from it, in fact!

This little card box contains 3 CDs and was issued by what is now Sony by BMG Classics in 2005 in a series devoted to Staier's recordings. All are splendid.

CD1 is a reissue of Haydn - Keyboard Sonatas and contain Haydn's later sonatas, Hob XVI 48-52, from 1789-94, played on a Fortepiano built in 1989 by Christopher Clarke after Anton Walter's 1790 original. The musician Jos van Immerseel owns this instrument, according to the excellent booklet notes.

CD2 is a reissue of Haydn - Sonatas - Volume 2, containing Sei Sonate... Opera XXX, Hob XVI 35-39 and 20. These are played on a different Christopher Clarke fortepiano built in 1986 after a 1792 Anton Walter.

CD3 is a reissue of Haydn - Fortepiano Sonatas, Vol.3, and this contains the Arietta con 12 Variazioni in E flat major Hob. XVII/3, Sonata in E minor Hob. XVI/34, Andante con Variazioni in F minor Hob. XVII/6, Sonata in D major Hob. XVI/3, and the Variations on the hymn "Gott erhalte" Hob. III/77. The instrument is the same one as on CD2.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By JM Olmesdahl on 19 Sep 2011
These are simply the best recordings around of these Haydn sonatas on a fortepiano. They are they superbly played and most beautifully recorded too, much more transparent and clear than the overly reverberant sound Ronald Brautigam gets on his Haydn-Sonatas cycle on BIS - Haydn Complete Music for Solo Keyboard, good as Brautigam's playing is. My only lament is that Staier only recorded the three CD's of this set and did not go on to record more. These recordings were difficult to obtain prior to the release of this box set so grab it while you can. If you like the sound of Haydn on a fortepiano, you can't beat this!
