Description
The 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth ushered in the release of acclaimed conductor/pianist Mikhail Pletnev’s first recording of the Piano Sonatas K. 330, 331, 332, and 457. Befitting a performer who avows that “an artist without intuition would do better to become a bookkeeper,” these interpretations form a fascinating dialogue between composer and musician.

“There is so much that is outstanding about Pletnev’s playing in these four sonatas—not least the limpid, crystalline sound world and the precisely exquisite rhythmic articulation…. Isolated movements are unreservedly superb—the Rondo alla Turca that ends the A major sonata K. 331, for example, in which Pletnev magically conjures the sounds of the Turkish music, or the way in which he faultlessly builds the drama in the opening movement of the C minor work K. 457.”—The Guardian

“These sonatas flow from the soul straight to the piano … resulting in a performance where both the music and performer speak and breathe naturally. The phrases quicken and ebb exquisitely and masterfully; the flow is entrancing.”—CKUA Educational Radio Network, Alberta
