What did Haydn sound like while he was on tour in London, giving concerts and teaching? Today, nobody perhaps comes closer to the sound from that time than Rebecca Maurer, who plays here on her original London fortepiano from 1816. Furthermore, the internationally sought-after fortepiano virtuoso does this with dazzling technique and immaculate stylistic confidence. The repertoire is also sensational, above all because it is not every day that one finds world premiere recordings by Haydn students on program flyers: fragrant music of Sentimentalism with some hints of Romanticism by Thomas Haigh and Christian Ignatius Latrobe. Outstanding repertoire!

"Maurer’s performances are quite exquisite with a real feel for this music. However, these are not historical exercises alone, she shapes this music and brings it to life making for a truly engaging experience even in the lesser-known pieces. One wonders if she might consider tackling a complete Haydn cycle some day." Read the review (June 2019) here on the website of Cinemusical.

"...an intresting recital, well played and recorded." Listen to the Review hereon the website of BBC Radio 3.

Early Music Review
"Maurer plays the lesser works of Haigh and Latrobe with as much insight and respect that she brings to the Haydn. To cap off what is both an interesting and extremely well-played and recorded CD, the presentation is exemplary, including not only notes on music and performer but also colour photographs and a description of the piano."Read the whole review of 02.04.2019 on the website of Early Music Review.

Fono Forum / June 2019
Beeindruckend aber ist vor allem Mauerers Umgang mit dem Broadwood-Flügel: Sie dosiert genau den Einsatz des Prdals, dass alles klar und billant bleibt und gleichzeitig die großen Klangmöglichkeiten des Fortepianos voll zur Geltung kommen können. Sie entlockt dem historischen Instrument voluminösen Klangrausch, aber auch sanfte, innige Momente.
