Prize-winning accordion virtuoso Viviane Chassot literally infuses a selection of Joseph Haydn's piano sonatas with new life on her new GENUIN release. A bubbling effervescence, an expressive sigh, a moan of complaint, the warm and versatile tone of her instrument embraces the polished clarity of Haydn’s works, treating listeners to tonal colors which may never have been heard before in these works. At the same time, she stays true to the clear formal structure, with long arching lines and her unceasing rhythmic drive. As Haydn once said: “What comes from the heart, also goes to the heart ...”

Alfred Brendel
"The interpretation is perfect in its kind. Freshness, control, and sensitivity combine together in the most beautiful way."

"Chassot has pulled off a wonderful interpretation which transforms the accordion into an absolutely classic instrument."
