Haydn never left indications for how his sonatas should be played (the custom of giving such indications had not yet come about), so there is quite a bit of amplitude that a player can give to their interpretation. Bavouzet does a great job: plausible (a clearly classical style) but still fluid and enjoyable. In my experience piano sonatas are best in minor key, but the these compositions do great things in major keys, the ones in minor keys in this set (E minor an G minor) just seemed a little too cutesy. I most liked #48 (first piece) and to lesser degree # 50 and #20.
