The Complete Piano Sonatas (plus Fantasia)

Haydn's keyboard oeuvre consists of more than 60 sonatas and about 10 keyboard pieces as well as more than 40 trios and divertimenti with solo keyboard, plus half-dozen concertos for harpsichord, piano and organ. It is possible to follow the extraordinarily fast development of the Viennese keyboard music after 1750 in those works and their musical language, just as one can easily reconstruct the progressive substitution of the harpsichord and clavichord with the pianoforte. The piano sonatas are particularly characteristic witnesses of these changes.

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata is No.14 in C-sharp minor and is one of his most famous Piano Sonatas, particularly the first movement which we present here. This movement is sometimes labelled "Quasi una fantasia" (like a Fantasy) though it doesn't suggest moonlight in any way. Rather it is quite a dark quiet movement with an insistent triplet rhythm, and the challenge for the pianist is to keep this even with just the right nuances of crescendo and rubato in appropriate places. We have included some suggested pedalling suitable for a modern piano, though the aim is to achieve a smooth sustained legato without muddying the harmonies.

Actually, Gould did record some of the standard repertoire, including a complete set of the Mozart piano sonatas and many of Beethoven's. While they were far from idiomatic and were generally written off as perverse, for those who already know these works Gould's approach can be a revelation. For example, Gould sped up the first movement of Beethoven's “Moonlight” Sonata and drained it of inflection in order to suggest a wistful dance rather than wallowing in the usual melancholy despair. On the other hand, he decelerated the first movement of the “Appassionata” Sonata to barely half its standard pace, exaggerating its pauses and bass-heavy sonority to turn its drama into very heavy melodrama.

Gould often cited this massive final compendium of Bach's art as his favorite work, yet he never made a complete recording (nor, for that matter, ever performed
