Notes and Editorial Reviews

The arrangements of Scottish 'national melodies' (nearly 400 in all) are among the little-known gems of Haydn's last years. Already an acknowledged master of the piano trio medium (as is proved by the inspired Trio Hob. XV:27 also included here), Haydn turned his accompaniments to these songs into miniature chamber music masterpieces brimming with vigor and wit. This recording featuring tenor Werner Güra offers a selection of these works that covers a wide expressive range, from tender love songs to songs rich with sarcastic folk humor.

Les arrangements de “mélodies nationales” écossaises (près de 400 en tout) constituent des joyaux peu connus des dernières années de Haydn.
Read more Déjà passé maître de l’écriture pour trio avec piano (comme le prouve le génial Trio Hob.XV:27 proposé en complément), il fait de ses accompagnements pour ces chansons des chefs-d’œuvre miniatures de verve et d’esprit. Notre sélection couvre une grande gamme expressive, du tendre chant d’amour à l’humour populaire le plus débridé.

"It’s a pleasure to hear a leading Lieder interpreter championing this undervalued repertoire." – Financial Times Read less
