Joanna Leach presents a second selection of sonatas, and the lovely Capriccio. These works are played on a Stodart square piano of 1823 and the CD is therefore a genuine reconstruction of the sort of sound heard when these works were new and contemporary. The instrument was restored by Andrew Lancaster.

Reviews

The Consort

Charles Burney wrote of Haydn, ‘There are painted on his countenance all the genius, goodness, propriety, benevolence and rectitude which constantly characterise his writings’. I believe that Joanna Leach has displayed all these qualities in her interpretations.
