     "Haefliger gave the music largesse through a spacious tempo, expressive phrasing…always bestowing the melodies with shapely care while ensuring that vitality coursed through the music... With Haefliger creating many timbres and images, something of a revelation took place."

Classical Source, December 2015

Coming from a rich tradition, the pianist Andreas Haefliger is: “consummately lyrical. Exhibitionism and pretense are antithetical to his musical personality”; he has “a vision of musical architecture second to none and a tender, profoundly cultivated sensibility, from which music flows unimpeded” (International Record Review, September 2014). He has won many plaudits for his Beethoven Perspectives recitals on disc (Avie) and at major halls and festivals. He is also much sought-after as a chamber musician – past highlights include Mostly Mozart New York with the Takacs Quartet, and Salzburg Festival with Mathias Goerne. In 2014 he gave the premiere at the BBC Proms of a new concerto written for him by Chinese-American composer Zhou Long.

Andreas Haefliger continues his fascinating, thought provoking, and captivating Perspectives series in which he juxtaposes the Piano Sonatas of Beethoven with other composers, casting an enlightening glow on the works which one would not detect if played in isolation. On Perspectives 6, themes of humanity, nature and love run through a program emphatically to be listened to rather than analyzed intellectually. Haefliger opens with Beethoven’s early Piano Sonata No. 10, Op. 14, then segues into two of Berio’s seldom heard encores, Erdenklavier and Wasserklavier. He emerges to perform Beethoven’s late Piano Sonata No. 30, Op. 109, followed by two more miniatures by Berio, Luftklavier and Feuerklavier. The album culminates with Schumann’s great Fantasy in C.
