In the last days of October 2013 I recorded a solo CD. The main feature was Haydn’s passion music “The Last Seven Words of our Saviour on the Cross.” Originally composed for an orchestra, the version for a string quartet is part of the standard repertoire for this genre. What is not so well-known is that there is also a version for a keyboard instrument. When the publishers Henle produced a reliable edition of the work some years ago, I was attracted to the idea of one day giving voice to this meditation on the piano.
