Hamelin’s Mozart.


  • 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:
