"... if you’ve been collecting this series you won’t need any recommendation from me, if you haven’t been, you ought to start. Once again Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s Haydn sweeps the field. Another great release in a standard-setting series."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Five Stars ... (Bavouzet's) best yet. In the first two installments, the lucidity of touch and depth of insight were outstanding. To this he brings a more consistent use of enlivening decoration in repeats and a still firmer grasp of the long-breathed paragraphing behind Haydn's neatly demarcated sentences."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Five Stars ... Bavouzet employs the full range of available ornamentation in his mission to present the clearest, richest musical argument possible ... cleanly precise, sure-fingered yet beautifully delicate, Bavouzet warms the heart with his humour and gentle passion. A recording worth rushing to the shops for. Bavouzet plays these inventive masterpieces with real love."
- Classic FM

Multiple award-winning pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet continues his critically acclaimed survey of Haydn’s piano sonatas with this third volume, released in September 2011.

"Each volume of this ambitious, extended project will arrive over the years like a postcard, dispatched during my travels ... undertaken with the greatest passion for trying to convey as vividly as possible to 21st century ears the boundless treasures of this sublime music."

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!
