Many leading pianists have tackled these virtuosic classical Sonatas but Bavouzet really feels he has something new to say.

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's complete Debussy cycle has been a big hit across the world, picking up numerous awards on the way. He has now decided to embark upon a Haydn cycle highlighting the fact that he should in no way be pigeon-holed as a ‘French' specialist. Many leading pianists have tackled these virtuosic classical Sonatas but Bavouzet really feels he has something new to say. The programme for Volume 1 includes the experimental and ambitious Sonata in A flat No.31, the elegantly virtuosic Sonata in D major No.391, the expressive Sonata in B minor, No.47 and the almost Schubertian Sonata in C sharp minor op.49. Bavouzet shipped in a specially selected Yamaha piano for the recording which he feels give the sort of tonal quality he is looking for.

5 stars Musica

International Piano Choice: 'Every second of this CD is a delight, with Bavouzet's artistry carrying anything that might sound routine.' International Piano Magazine

Artistic Quality - 10 / Sound Quality - 10: 'We badly need a great Haydn sonata cycle on a modern instrument, and on evidence here Jean-Efflam Bavouzet's promises to be just the ticket. It's fabulous, as wonderful in its own way as was his Debussy cycle for this same label. His approach couldn't be more intelligent .  Interpretively, this is as good as it gets.  The sonics are totally at one with the performances: brilliantly vivid, but never hard. I can't wait for Volume 2.' ClassicToday.com

‘Editor's Choice': 'Bavouzet turns from Debussy to Haydn with vivid results.  Clarity and control from Bavouzet.  The first disc in what I hope will be a long and comprehensive series.' Gramophone

CD of the Week: 'The French pianist renowned for Debussy has now turned his attention to Haydn, and the results are effervescent and dazzling.' The Observer

'Unadulterated bliss.' 5 stars The Sunday Times

'The first volume of a projected collection of the complete sonatas, this delightful disc contains four pieces across a 15-year period when the fortepiano was supplanting the harpsichord. Unlike Mozart's sonatas, they still have a Baroque feel which Bavouzet doesn't seek to play down, and he conveys Haydn's impish spirit with the utmost clarity.' 4 stars The Telegraph

'...this first disc [Haydn series] suggests that however extensive his survey turns out to be, the results should be well worth hearing. Though he exploits all the tonal possibilities of the modern concert grand, Bavouzet also makes full use of the latest ideas on performance practice...It's the best kind of historically alert piano playing.' 4 stars The Guardian

'...This first release is a long-term series offers four sonatas, dispatched with scintillating brightness and many ornamental trills. Bavouzet's fingers are so spiky and sprightly that you might yearn for some flowing legato. It's impossible not too be impressed, though, by the grand carnival of the relatively lengthy No 31 in A flat.' The Times

Performance 4 stars / Recording 4 stars BBC Music Magazine

'...Bavouzet seems completely in his element throughout this fine disc, the recorded sound is close but natural, and the booklet notes by Marc Vigal are as elegant and insightful as the playing. I look forward to the next volume in this series.' International Record Review

'...Altogether, this beautifully recorded disc promises well for another classic Bavouzet set to compliment his prize-winning Debussy recordings.' 5 stars Classic FM Magazine

Album of the Week: '...Bavouzet shines brilliantly in Haydn's first ‘great concert sonata', but he is just as good with the intimate moments: roll on the rest CD in this complete cycle.' The Independent
