Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mozart’s output for two separate fortepianos is limited to a few major works: the great D major Sonata, K. 448 and the C minor Fugue, K. 426, composed in the wake of the composer’s acquaintance with the Bach and Handel aficionado, Baron Gottfried van Swieten. Robert Levin’s completion of the Larghetto & Allegro in E flat major supplements these works to provide a complete survey of this repertoire in exciting performances by Duo Cristofori.
