Mozart: Piano Sonatas
Mozart: Piano Sonatas (Decca 480 6570)
SKU: 16283
AU $27.22

Label: Decca Cat. No.: 480 6570 Medium: CD No. Discs: 3

Alicia de Larrocha made several LPs of Mozart's solo piano music for Decca between 1973 and 1986. In a series of recordings on Decca Eloquence, reissued to celebrate her artistry, this 3CD set brings together, for the first time, all her solo Mozart nine sonatas, the D major Rondo, and the D minor and C minor Fantasias (both recordings of the C minor 1973 and 1986 are included in this set). The CDs are filled out with her two Haydn recordings for Decca the F minor Variations and the D major Concerto. The booklet includes colour reproductions of four of the LP sleeves pertaining to this release.

'refreshing what a lovely Mozartian touch she has each individual note glistens each one of the variations [in KV 331] is very keenly characterized Good marks to the engineers for such limpid tonal reproduction' Gramophone, April 1975, on KV 331, 475, 485)

'played with grace and refinement [Haydn Variations] considerable warmth of feeling is apparent' Gramophone, December 1976, on KV 311, 330, 397, Haydn Variations

'effortless this doyenne of Spanish pianists knows how to tap the lyrical source to so much of Mozart's invention and how to sing like a nightingale. She invites us to listen; but her tone of voice is never over-insistent. All credit to Decca for the warm and lifelike sound' Gramophone, March 1979, on KV 332, 545, 576

'It is not easy to make Mozart's earlier sonatas sound more than accomplished and fluent, but this great Spanish artist brings out all the tenderness and humanity of this unpretentious little work [KV 282]; and she plays the great A minor with a sense of commitment and understanding that is far more telling than the stormy, melodramatic approach adopted by many lesser pianists' Gramophone, January 1981, on KV 282, 310

'[Larrocha] plays the Mozart sonatas with great authority and conviction she seems to see this C minor drama through Beethoven's sturdy eyes.' Gramophone, September 1987, on KV 457, 475

'invigorating The recording is exemplary throughout'Gramophone, June 1981, on Haydn Concerto
