Exquisite
Hardly understandable: Joseph Haydn is still one of the most underrated composers of the classical era. With these four sonatas, Christian Zacharias presents a very individually designed solo album. The works from Haydn's "middle" creative period were written at the Esterhazy court and surprise us with their generous freedom of form, which Zacharias knows how to develop beautifully.


Surprizing
There was no fixed scheme for the form of the sonata in Haydn's time. And so even the outer structure is very different: Two or three movements, sometimes a cycle of variations at the beginning, major and minor keys in surprising alternation - Haydn does not impose any constraints on himself, and so a kind of intelligent monologue emerges, which lives from the entertaining alternation of aphoristic ideas. Absolutely fascinating, how Haydn, who is always up for a joke, flashes up again and again...

"Christian Zacharias: Eine perfekte Wiederbelebung von Haydn
Dies ist ein großartiges Programm, das uns bedauern lässt, dass Christian Zacharias im Laufe seiner bereits langen Karriere nicht mehr Haydn aufgenommen hat. Denn zwischen dem Komponisten und seinem Interpreten gibt es mehr als nur Verständnis: eine Komplizenschaft in jedem Augenblick. Man kann dem Künstler nur wünschen, dass er sich noch mehr Zeit nimmt, um sich mit den Partituren eines Schöpfers zu beschäftigen, den er so gut versteht. Der große Konzert-Steinway
"Manfred Bürki" aus dem Jahr 1901 besticht durch seinen tiefen, zarten Klang. Er trägt wesentlich zum Erfolg dieser Haydn-Veranstaltung bei." - Crescendo BE

Infinite
With Christian Zacharias, this manifold richness is in the best hands. Singing legato, delicate intonation and phrasing of convincing naturalness allow the audience to share in the master's ideas; Zacharias' recital takes the listener on a journey that awakens astonishing associations and hidden emotions - and should never end.

Enchanting
The natural sound reproduction in three-dimensional 2+2+2 Recording on high-resolution Super Audio CD does its part to make one forget the sophisticated technology behind a striking matter-of-factness. It is almost unbelievable what sounds Christian Zacharias is able to conjure out of the modern Steinway "Manfred Bürki" from 1901!
