Haydn and Oysters: the perfect evening,
This review is from: Haydn - Piano Sonatas - Marc-André Hamelin (Audio CD)
This CD is like a plateful of oysters; delightfully light yet deeply satisfying. Much of Haydn's music conveys a sense of the joy of living, and this disc has it in spades. Hamelin's effortless, filigree-like control of the composer's characterisitc spangle of notes is astonishing, all beautifully captured by a recording of demonstration quality.
I became an admirer of Hamelin having acquired his recording of Brahm's Piano Quartets. His mastery of both composers' music is simply dazzling.
