van Oort, Bart;
Several assets set this box apart from its competitors in the market, and not just the price‐point for which Brilliant Classics is well known. It is the most complete set of Haydn’s piano works available: there are others of the solo works, which exclude the spirited keyboard concertos (only those which he wrote for the fortepiano are included here; there are others for harpsichord and organ which can be found in Brilliant Classics compendious Haydn Edition, BC93782). Other ‘complete’ box sets omit the version of the Seven Last Words which Haydn may not have arranged himself, but which still powerfully conveys the pathos of his orchestral original. Then there are the many ‘miscellaneous’ variation sets, single movements and solo arrangements of pieces from larger-scale works such as the symphonies, operas and string quartets, which Bart van Oort diligently researched and recorded a few years ago on a fine modern reproduction of a fortepiano by Walter, a maker esteemed by Haydn and Beethoven. Several of these smaller works are not otherwise available. No less valuably, all the recordings are made on fortepianos on the scale that the composer himself played and composed for: with a lighter and more capricious touch than today’s pianos, enabling him to write fast movements of complementary brilliance which can sound heavy or clangorous on modern instruments. Likewise all the pianists here are historically informed fortepianists by inclination, who have made most of their recordings in music of this era
