Penguin Guide, January 2009

The sonatas in Volume 5 of the Naxos series form a set of six, written in 1773 and dedicated to Prince Nikolaus Esterházy. They are all attractive works and they inspire Jandó to consistently fine performances, as the opening of No. 36 immediately shows. The finale of No. 37 is beautifully played, and the following two sonatas with their striking slow movements will not disappoint either. This is one of the most rewarding issues in this admirable series. Excellent piano sound.

"Jeno Jando is gradually approaching completeness in his own Haydn series, characterized by a no-nonsense, down-to-earth vivacity."

James Manishen
Winnipeg Free Press, May 1995

"Hungarian Pianist Jeno Jando's Haydn can be warmly recommended for classically poised, beautifully regulated playing of these highly resourceful sonatas ... An ideal recording and budget price further enhance this excellent issue."


"Jando is confirming his reputation as a fluent Haydn interpreter, wholly in sympathy with the composer's musical language."
