In 1877 Edvard Grieg informed his publisher that he had added “a free, second piano to several of Mozart’s sonatas.” As he later emphasised, his modernization “did not change a single one of Mozart’s notes”, but constituted “a way of showing admiration for an old master.” Grieg also intended the pieces for a duo of student at teacher; here the performers are a pianist of exceptional distinction and her legendary mentor: Elisabeth Leonskaja and Sviatoslav Richter.

Piano Sonata No. 1 in C, K279

Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major, K331 'Alla Turca'

Piano Sonata No. 15 in F major, K533/494


William Youn (piano)

Late last year, part of Mozart’s manuscript of the Sonata, K. 331 was found in Budapest. The manuscript, with the exception of the last page of the last movement, Rondo alla turca, had so far been considered missing under mysterious circumstances. The new Urtext, according to the pianist’s statement, not only contains alterations in the phrase markings, articulation, rhythm and dynamics, but there are some different notes as well. The opening of the second movement is particularly interesting for William Youn: “With the new phrase indication and new note (A instead of Csharp) in the third bar, I play the entire phrase with a completely different agogic quality, which lends it a different character as well. Bars 24–26 of the same movement have always been played in the minor key up until now – and they are now suddenly in major!”

Fortepiano phenomenon Kristian Bezuidenhout begins his multi-volume traversal of Mozart’s music for solo keyboard.

Volume 1 features an instrument by Derek Adlam modeled on an original by Gabriel Anton Walter of the type Mozart owned in Vienna. Kristian Bezuidenhout studied with Rebecca Penneys, Malcolm Bilson and Paul O’Dette. He first gained international recognition at the age of 21 after winning the prestigious first prize as well as the audience prize in the Bruges Fortepiano Competition (2001), a double honour, this being only the third time the former prize has been awarded in the history of the competition. Bezuidenhout is a frequent guest artist with the world’s leading ensembles and he now has a standing duo with the baroque violinist Petra Müllejans, artistic director of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra; their first CD, a disc of Mozart Violin Sonatas, was released on harmonia mundi USA in the Spring of 2009. Highlights of past seasons have included a complete cycle of the late Mozart Piano Concertos and the Beethoven Piano Concertos (Amsterdam Concertgebouw) with the Orchestra of the 18th Century under Frans Bruggen. Plans for the future include concerts with the Orchestre des Champs Elysées under Philippe Herreweghe; a Mendelssohn project with the Freiburger Baroque Orchestra and Gottfried von der Goltz; a tour with Les Arts Florissants; trio concerts with Viktoria Mullova & Pieter Wispelwey and more recordings for harmonia mundi.

“He plays a copy of a Walter fortepiano, such as Mozart owned...it fits the music like a glove...Bezuidenhout’s decorations sound — as is by no means always the case — supremely natural, and in the brilliant Gluck variations, it’s as if we were eavesdropping on the composer himself improvising.” Sunday Times, 11th April 2010 ****

“Bezuidenhout offers a personal distillation that is impressively absorbing. So indeed are the timbre and sonority of the instrument...But, perhaps unexpectedly, a singing line is to the fore too because Bezuidenhout is consummately artistic...These interpretations - excellent to outstanding - are interpretations of today.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2010

“This survey looks likely to set a new benchmark.” International Record Review, April 2010

“Bezuidenhout has a lively interpretive imagination, razor-sharp technique and fresh ideas about how to use the coloration of the fortepiano...to bring the music to life. If you doubt that the fortepiano can sing, listen to his plaintive readings of the Adagios from the Sonatas in F (K. 533/494) and B flat (K. 570)” New York Times, 26th November 2010

Diana Boyle (piano)

Diana Boyle is an English pianist who has lived and worked in the solitude of a Portuguese hilltop for many years. This secluded and magical location has created in her an inner peace and tranquillity, and the time to think deeply about her music, which shows through to wonderful effect in her interpretations of baroque and classical works. She strokes the keys with intense control, hardly ever using pedal, to create a sound which is warm and rich, never tense or agitated, and her fast passages are light and bright.

This double album (at mid-price) features eight of the Sonatas and in each case offers a wonderful performance which will be essential regular listening for even the most hardened of Mozart fans. We expect the critical response to be as positive (if not even better) than her previous two discs of music by Bach.

Piano Sonata No. 18 in D major, K576 'Hunt'


Mozart’s Piano Sonatas, important landmarks in any pianists’ repertoire, are seen as both wild improvisatory melodies and challenging exercises for Mozart’s pupils. In this, the conclusion of Christian Blackshaw’s complete Mozart Piano Sonatas, recorded live at Wigmore Hall, we hear four sonatas that extend from the composer’s early years until shortly before his death.

Each sonata is bought to life through Blackshaw’s luminous tone, compelling delicacy and virtuosity, as he explores the works with fresh insight and superlative musicality. Volume Three is Gramophone Editor's Choice in the August issue.

“Donald Tovey described the sonatas as “written with his left hand” while the composer was occupied with greater things. Yet so searching and satisfying is Blackshaw’s playing, so felicitous his touch, we have no sense of inferior works, least of all the two on the second disc, the sparkling K576 and the irresistible K533, with its richly decorated, Bach-inspired slow movement.” Sunday Times, 18th October 2015

“another welcome demonstration of his immaculate tone, delicate way with pacing and exquisite taste in articulation. In four sonatas taken from across the composer’s life, there is never a note of hurry or haste, and nothing that fails to enchant.” New York Times, 11th December 2015

“permit me to join the chorus of acclaim for his elegance of phrasing, limpid tone quality (captured in a demonstration-quality recording), tastefulness of nuance and ornamentation, and imaginative response to harmony and character. Every tiniest detail here is thought through... Yet nothing is fetishised. Perfection – or something very close to it – is in the service of freedom.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2016

“His interpretations are highly cultured and lucid, models of poise and natural spontaneity.” International Piano, January/February 2016

“The final instalment in Christian Blackshaw's Mozart sonata cycle is as musically illuminating as earlier discs in this series. Again, he gets inside the very distinctive qualities of each work, highlighting differences of emphasis that are not always apparent in other performances...Some of the most spellbinding playing is [K533's] slow movement.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2016 *****

Emil Gilels, like Svjatoslav Richter, his fellow citizen from Odessa, liked to visit Prague, the Mozart's beloved city. There, they felt free to leave aside their Slavic repertoire for tributes to the composer of the 'Magic Flute'. Gilels plays here the Schumannesque Ballades, by the young Brahms and the Fantasias Op. 116. Mozart's Piano Sonata K533/494 has not been issued before.

This double album is full of surprises and puts Mozart’s music into a new perspective fully realising the limitless adaptability of his music, as was commonplace in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Mozart Arranged is a journey through adaptations and arrangements of Mozart’s chamber music from his Grande Sestetto Concertante and Clarinet Quintet, through to adaptations of his piano sonatas for two pianos by Norwegian Edvard Grieg. The performances here are all arrangements of music that Mozart would have most certainly approved.

Mozart’s sonatas arranged for two pianos are more ‘adaptations’ than arrangements. Grieg augments the original sonatas, Mozart’s original remains unaltered as the primo piano and the Grieg influence is in the second piano part serves to contemporise the sonatas - 19th century crossover - and as Grieg was also a very capable pianist these are very considered works. When first released back in 1990s this recording from Julie Adam and Daniel Herschovitch was a world premiere recording, their performances here very much conveying Grieg and Mozart in dialogue, speaking and listening to each other.

The Australia Ensemble is the establishment chamber ensemble in Australia. All musicians are instrumental leaders in their field and although recorded in the 1990s all members remain with the ensemble some 20 years later. Violinist Dene Olding is currently concert-master of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and a noted soloist and founder for the Goldner String Quartet. Dimity Hall has a love of chamber music having been principal second violin of the Australian Chamber Orchestra as well as violinist in the Goldner String Quartet, along with violist Irina Morozova and cellist Julian Smiles.

“Essential listening! Grieg's Romanticism-filtered, two-piano takes on the Sonatas are charming. The other arrangements, too, are played with a lovely crisp elegance.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2014 *****

“Julie Adam and Daniel Herscovitch play charmingly and are well recorded, the latter a shade less discreet than the former when playing the Grieg part.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014
