The early Beethoven, the late Haydn… Where is the borderline between these two – what is the connection, what differentiates them? Although their ways of life and characters were clearly different, both masters lived in a time during which it was as important to obey the prescribed musical rules as it was to connect the artists intellect with his creativity, personality, and emotional world.

I make express use of the word artist here, because nowadays it is customary to divide the word artist into the composer and the interpreter. It is a known fact that the young Franz Liszt, when playing before Beethoven, was only able to satisfy the older master when he had transposed a Bach fugue into another key and, in addition, had improvised for a half hour! How, indeed, would Beethoven react today, when, instead of an own cadenza, the performer offers Beethovens cadenza exactly as planned and, moreover, carefully prepared? We forget all too easily that the cadenza is a free space for the soloists personal inventiveness and expertise in improvisation, as well as his technical brilliance…..

Press reviews

Rondomagazin

Pianistisch brillant is sein Spiel, in den schnellen Setzen rasch und Staccato-orientiert und manchmal sogar trocken zu nennen, dabei von einem dramatischen Impetus, die sich stark kontrastierender Dynamik und einer excentrische Behandlung des Metrums uert. (…)

Bayerische Rundfunkt, 4 Klassik

kammermusikalisch intim und das auf hchsten Niveau. Eine CD fr Sammler, die schon alles haben – und fr Klassikfreunde, die spa daran haben, das Original mit der Solomon-Frassung zu vergleichen.

Klassieke Zaken

een alleskunner die de muziekwereld steeds weer verbaasd doet staan… onnavolgbare vingervlugheid en briljant spel

Klassik.com

Der groe Durchbruch …. Wie kein anderer vor ihm lotet Lazic alle Spielarten des Haydnschen Witzes souvern aus – vom schechternen Grinsen bis zum derben Schenkelklopfer. … Das Klangbild der CD ist vorbildlicht: naturlich und rumlich beim Haydn, prezise und direkt beim Beethoven (…)

Fono Forum

Diese neue SACD hat hohen Originalitts- und Unterhaltungswert, zwingt zum Zuhren, geht vor allem bei Haydn bewusst an die grenzen des metrisch Mglichen.

Classics Today

I found it witty and compelling and a refreshing change of pace … the finale has terrific energy and real sparkle from the soloist …The solo piano works sound excellent…. it’s an attractive disc from a quirky pianistic personality.

Fanfare

The results are equally impressive technically and musically. I look forward to hearing more from this fine artist….. Lovely, often daring and humorous virtuoso duo works
