More from the renowned Haydn specialist, Lola Odiaga.

Lola Odiaga, the Peruvian harpsichordist and fortepianist, studied piano at the Juilliard School of Music in New York and at the Hochschule fur Musik in Hamburg, and harpsichord at Yale University. She holds degrees from the Juilliard School and Yale University and studied with Edward Steuermann and Ralph Kirkpatrick. She has taught at the National Conservatory of Music in her native Lima, Wellesley College, the Hartt College of Music, the Yale University School of Music and Boston University School of the Arts. Since 1983, she has only been performing on the fortepiano. The fortepiano used in this recording is a copy of an Anton Walter instrument dated c. 1790, built by Rodney Regier of Freeport, Maine. It has a compass of just over five octaves and - as was the case with the fortepianos of the period - in many ways resembles the harpsichord more than the modern piano. It has a wooden rather than a metal frame and is strung at a lower tension with lighter gauge strings. These features of its construction are directly related to a clear and distinct tone throughout its range.

Review:
"The two adagios are available from Brendel, but the two ariettas and the two allegrettos don't seem to be otherwise available. That alone is reason enough for Haydn completists to want this disc. For anyone wanting the Haydn piano sonatas on a period instrumentthis series by Lola Odiaga will serve well." (American Record Guide)
