Haydn: Sonatas for Piano; Andrew Rangell, piano
There is no more distinctive contribution to 18th Century keyboard literature than Haydn's 60 (or so) Sonatas. Andrew Rangell plays four of these masterworks, including the great C minor Sonata No. 33.
“Mr. Rangell offers probing and unpredictable renditions of 4 of Haydn’s 60 or so keyboard sonatas. He plays with imaginative flair in the sunny outer movements of the Sonata No. 50 in D and with introspection in its solemn Largo. The disco also includes deeply expressive performances of the Sonata No. 31 in G minor and the Sonata No. 33 in C minor.” - The New York Times
“Andrew Rangell’s performances of these four sonatas are individual and engaging. His playing is elegant and technically fluent, both of which are certainly relevant to Haydn.” - International Record Review
