- Piano Sonatas
Eight of Mozart’s amazing Piano Sonatas are beautifully performed on this CD by Marc-André Hamelin. Two Rondos, a Fantasia, and a funny little Gigue complete a delightful recording.
For me, Mozart’s music is always a welcome gift; we get to listen to the following:
Piano Sonata No. 18 in D major, K576 ‘Hunt’
Piano Sonata No. 5 in G, K283
Piano Sonata No. 12 in F major, K332
Piano Sonata No. 17 in B flat major, K570
Rondo in D major, K485
Gigue in G Major, K574
Piano Sonata No. 10 in C major, K330
Piano Sonata No. 13 in B flat major, K333
Piano Sonata No. 16 in C major, K545 ‘Facile’
Piano Sonata No. 4 in E flat major K282
Rondo in A minor, K511
Fantasia in D minor, K397
Performed by Marc-André Hamelin.
Hamelin combines virtuosity and sensitivity in the performance of these works. His keyboard technique is dazzling and his musical insight has become well-known. He combines an unusually wide span in covering the keyboard with dazzling speed and stunning accuracy.
Here is Hamelin playing Mozart’s Sonata in C, K545:
And next, let’s hear him play the Bach-Busoni Chaconne:
