Notes and Editorial Reviews

Following on from his critically acclaimed account of Brahms and Schumann on Signum Classics, the UK's most respected pianist, John Lill, returns to take the listener on a journey through the many moods of Haydn, in brilliant performances of some of the composer's most intriguing works for keyboard. 'He is one of the greatest pianists alive today. Across the board, I do not know another pianist who could hold a candle to this magisterial keyboard player. Unsurpassed playing. An intellectual giant and master craftsman.' - Michael Tumelty, The Glasgow Herald, October 2004 Following on from his critically acclaimed account of Brahms and Schumann on Signum Classics, the UK's most respected pianist, John Lill, returns to take the listener on a journey through the many moods of Haydn, in brilliant performances of some of the composer's most intriguing works for keyboard.
