Haydn: Complete Keyboard Sonatas, Vol. 2
Haydn: Complete Keyboard Sonatas, Vol. 2 (Tall Poppies TP208)

Label: Tall Poppies Cat. No.: TP208 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

2009 was the bicentenary of the death of Joseph Haydn, and to commemorate this anniversary Tall Poppies and fortepianist Geoffrey Lancaster are journeying through Haydn's complete keyboard sonatas. Lancaster has performed the complete sonatas in concert series in Melbourne and Canberra, and has been recording the works using period instruments from the unique collection of early keyboards at the Australian National University School of Music, where Dr Lancaster is Head of Keyboards. As a master of the fortepiano, his historically-informed performances bring clarity, originality and insightful musical understanding to these works, the fortepiano responding with gusto to the drama and emotion in the music. Tall Poppies is proud that the covers for this series feature paintings by Australia's great painter, Fred Williams (with kind permission of Lyn Williams), giving this series a uniquely Australian flavour. The initial CDs have been generously supported by the Friends of the ANU School of Music.

Volume 1 (TP201) has garnered great praise from the critics:

"This is an important, indeed watershed recording." - Music Forum May 2010.

"This will be a series to collect." The Australian.

"...the most winning and flexible interpretations of some of Haydn's finest and most lovable sonatas... An imperative purchase, and one that should hasten the death-knell of the ubiquitous Steinway in this repertoire." - Musical Pointers.

"As Haydn and the classical music mainstream go, this is a daring move but one that should be in the mainstream of how recordings add value to musical life. The results are preposterous but thoroughly delightful and should be on every Haydn lover's wish list." - May 2010 Audiophile Audition.
