Haydn’s relationship with the keyboard was so intimate and inspirational that it enabled him to develop any number of ideas of the most varied character, from the most whimsical to the most dramatic: highly attractive music – in general dedicated to ladies – that combines mischievousness, ingenuousness, eloquence and lyricism. A whole art of contrast, interpreted with unique grace by Paul Lewis.
