Nowadays most performers overlook Haydn's piano sonatas, mainly because over years these works have been deemed as less-interesting or duller than those by Haydn's fellow composers, namely Mozart and Beethoven. This unrighteous judgement stems definitely from a sloppy understanding of this composers's outstanding and unique skills.

(Franz) Joseph Haydn's highly experimental wit is pervasive throughout the evolution of his style, in particular in these last four grand sonatas, which should be doubtlessly considered 'concert pieces'.

A thorough analysis of these works showcases a relentless growth in terms of formal, harmonic and thematic ingenuity, which reaches its peak in the last and most difficult sonata, the second one in the key of E-flat major from this set. It's very likely that this sonata had a major influence in the young Ludwig van Beethoven, whose first sonatas present a huge amount of musical and technical discoveries by the old master.

Giovanni Mazzocchin strives to perform the works in question with a historically informed approach, insofar as this can be done on a modern concert grand. He always plays the repetitions with remarkable changes that range from slight modifications in terms of dynamics to ornaments and small cadenzas on the main fermatas.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
