It was in 1774 that Joseph Haydn had his first set of solo keyboard sonatas published and that Mozart first tackled the genre. The five sonatas presented here all date from 1773-1783, a decade that saw the fortepiano swiftly become the preferred medium for a new style of keyboard writing, to the detriment of the harpsichord. All that remained was to find the instrument to speak this new language: the late eighteenth-century German piano on which Jérôme Hantaï is recorded offers us a chance to hear a unique, expressive, cantabile voice.

C’est en 1774 que Joseph Haydn fait graver son premier opus pour clavier seul et que Mozart aborde à son tour ce genre musical. Les cinq sonates présentées ici datent toutes des années 1773-1783, décennie qui va voir très vite le pianoforte devenir le medium favori d’un nouveau style d’écriture pour le clavier, au détriment du clavecin. Restait à trouver l’instrument pour parler cette langue nouvelle : le piano allemand de la fin du 18° enregistré par Jérôme Hantaï nous fait entendre une voix unique, expressive et chantante.
