An desultory blog aimed at passing on some of the wonderful free classical music that has come my way. These range from restorations of vintage recordings to concerts from the internet.

András Schiff - a whole Haydn recital
Digital satellite recording from German radio, 320kbs
Schiff does Haydn proud. The programme includes old favourites such as the world-weary F minor variations, which Haydn playfully entitled Un piccolo divertimento and the well-known E-flat sonata, but also some works which really deserve more exposure – the G minor sonata, for instance.
I am grateful to a German colleague for making the original mp2 available to me, which I have converted and edited.
