Notes and Editorial Reviews
Bobby Mitchell performs a selection of Haydn piano sonatas on an authentic fortepiano of the period, and in one work he includes measures from the original manuscript that Haydn's publishers omitted.
About Bobby Mitchell:
"For his first disc, Bobby Mitchell, ‘Alpha winner’ of the legendary Bruges Competition, proposes a programme devoted to Joseph Haydn. His interpretation, juvenile yet based on solid musicological research, lets us rediscover all of Haydn’s humour as well as the depth of his feelings. It also reveals an unusual musical personality and an absolutely remarkable pianist. Bobby Mitchell is a perfect example of Alpha’s desire to bear witness to the talent of young ar t i st s and to accompany them in
their development: a way for the label to contribute to the future of ‘early music’." -
