Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)

The multi-award winning and ever-popular Jean-Efflam Bavouzet is back with Volume 2 of Chandos’ highly acclaimed Haydn Sonata series. This new release follows Bavouzet’s complete Debussy cycle and a number of recent concerto recordings – all of which have been extraordinarily well received by critics and audiences alike, picking up numerous awards along the way.

Many leading pianists have tackled these at times technically challenging classical sonatas by Haydn, but in 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: few instructions on nuance and phrasing, and very minimal tempo indications. Playing them is all the more fascinating for that, but it is also arduous and even risky for the performer, who must, even more than usual, create his or her own world and internal logic, only hoping – in the absence of tangible proof – that he or she is not straying too far from the composer’s intentions, forever out of reach.’

For the recording Bavouzet brought in a specially selected Yamaha piano which he feels gives the sort of tonal quality he is looking for, and it shows in the programme for Volume 2 which includes the elegantly virtuosic Sonata in E minor, No. 19; Sonata in B flat major, No. 20; Sonata in G minor, No. 32; Sonata in C major, No. 48, and Sonata in D major, No. 50.

Reviews for Volume 1 in Bavouzet’s Haydn Sonata series:

International Piano Choice

‘Every second of this CD is a delight with Bavouzet’s artistry carrying anything that might sound routine.’

International Piano

Editor’s Choice

‘Bavouzet turns from Debussy to Haydn with vivid results… the first disc in what I hope will be a long and comprehensive series.’

Gramophone

‘This beautifully recorded disc promises well for another classic Bavouzet set to complement his prize-winning Debussy recordings’ *****
