Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

There are no autograph manuscripts of Haydn’s earliest sonatas, which were all written before 1766. The authenticity of No. 1 (Hob. XVI/8) is certain, and many of the others of these three-movement works bear the same musical finger-print and a characteristic simplicity of style. Doubts have been expressed about No. 8 (Hob XVI/5), but it is presented attractively enough here. Indeed Jeno Jandó seems in his element throughout: his freshness of approach and stylistic confidence are consistently striking. The recording too is excellent, and overall this Naxos series can be recommended with confidence.
