Mozart’s Magic.


Anne-Sophie Mutter plays Mozart.

Parents frequently entice their kids to “be good”. My sister and I were no exception. And toward the end of the work – week, we might hear our mother say “If you are good, Dad will play Mozart for you before you go to sleep”.

That’s how I came to love the music of Mozart from an early age. As a child I would hear my father practice and play the violin part of the violin and piano sonatas by Mozart.

And on occasion a pianist friend would be invited over for tea and cake on a Saturday afternoon, and then we’d hear the sonatas with participation of the second voice.

This recording by Anne-Sophie Mutter brings the old days back in a musical way. I can only marvel at the amazingly sensitive interpretation of these ancient sounds, as they are presented with Lambert Orkis, piano.

Here is Anne Sophie Mutter, as she plays W. A. Mozart’s Sonata KV 302:



And next, here is the Mozart Violin & Piano Sonata No. 28 in E flat major K380 I.-Allegro:
