Info for Mozart: Piano Sonatas, Vol. 5 - K. 540, 494, 545, 570 & 576



Spanning the length of his mature career, Mozart's piano sonatas were written between 1774 and 1788, and occupy a fundamental position within the keyboard repertoire.

The early sonatas were influenced by the so-called "style galant” of the Bach brothers Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and Carl Philipp Emanuel, though we hear clear references to some of the traits that characterized the keyboard music of earlier decades. In the sonatas of the late 1770s and early 1780s, we begin to hear new influences, including perhaps Haydn, and even foreshadowing the early works of Beethoven. The late sonatas were composed as the piano witnesses dramatic developments, with new mechanical and sonic solutions that gave access to new coloristic and expressive capabilities.

This collection brings together the complete sonatas [18], fantasies [4], and rondos [3], along with the Adagio K. 540, giving us a complete vision of Mozart's pianistic and compositional career.

The entire collection is masterfully interpreted by Italian pianist Giuseppe Greco through a reading that is crisp in detail and wide-ranging in moods.

"Listening to Giuseppe Greco in live performances, I found his sound to be warm and full. His technical brilliance is not superficial, but always serving the music’s expression and meaning." (Bruno Canino)
