2009 release featuring three-time Grammyr Award winner Thomas Quasthoff, who offers an album of rarely performed Haydn arias. Though known mostly as a symphonic and chamber music composer, Haydn has a considerable operatic output that has rarely been explored, especially the bass-baritone repertory. By entering into this almost uncharted territory, Quasthoff has revealed the genius (many times comic genius) of Haydn much in the same way that Cecilia Bartoli has previously explored lesser known works by other Baroque and Classical masters.
