Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gottlieb Wallisch launched his international career by winning the ‘Joseph Haydn Prize' as well as first prize at the prestigious Stravinsky Awards at the age of just sixteen. He celebrated Haydn's anniversary year in 2009 by giving a critically acclaimed cycle of concerts in the Musikverein, Vienna dedicated to the composer. Famed for his clarity of line and purity of tone, Gottlieb Wallisch moves from Mozart to his contemporary Haydn for his fourth recording with Linn.

Haydn's famous London Sonatas can be viewed as the distillation of the composer's entire sonata-writing experience; Gottlieb perfectly captures his characteristic humour, energy and spiritedness. - Linn Records
