Haydn: Fortepiano Sonatas, Adagio & Variations
For his first disc, Bobby Mitchell, ‘Alpha winner’ of the legendary Bruges Competition, proposes a programme devoted to Joseph Haydn. His interpretation, juvenile yet based on solid musicological research, lets us rediscover all of Haydn’s humour as well as the depth of his feelings. It also reveals an unusual musical personality and an absolutely remarkable pianist. Bobby Mitchell is a perfect example of Alpha’s desire to bear witness to the talent of young artists and to accompany them in their development: a way for the label to contribute to the future of ‘early music’.
