The Grammy award-winning pianist Daniel Barenboim, long known for his Mozart interpretations, turns his attention to Mozart's piano sonatas, a body of work that, while forming the core of the pianist’s repertory, is not often heard in the concert hall. These sonatas showcase Mozart's genius for the small-scale, and truly shine in Barenboim's masterful rendering.
This collection includes all eighteen sonatas, from well-known works like K 545 in C major and K 331 in A major, to lesser-known gems like K 284 in D major and the Fantasia and Sonata in C minor, K 475/457 and were recorded from 1988-1990.
This is a new release of the series of Metropolitan Munich programs.

“Barenboim reinvigorates Mozart's Sonatas with the young Beethoven's fire and wit. Each work emerges as a gem.”
