Bookmark and Share

This is the first volume in a series of new recordings in which pianist Roman Rabinovich will perform all of the piano sonatas written by Haydn. Haydn composed 62 keyboard sonatas. Written over a 40 year period or so, and displaying a variety of styles, the earlier sonatas were written for harpsichord and the last for the newly developed hammer-action fortepiano. The New York Times hailed Rabinovich's Haydn performances for "a rich, full-blooded sound, singing lines and witty dexterity."

For Sunday February 10, Roman Rabinovich - Haydn Piano Sonatas is the WFMT: Chicago 'Featured New Release'
