Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This live Carnegie Hall recital... containins a quite glorious account of the Mozart F major Sonata and some treasurable playing in the other works as well... It is billed as Watts's 25th Anniversary Recital and it is evident that each piece has very special meaning for him... In the Haydn... there is a delightful fluency to the phrasing and exquisite gradation in the tone. The presto second movement, its rondo restatements highly inflected but always with Haydnesque charm and wit, is understandably greeted with bravos... In the Mozart the repeats are one of the highlights of the performance. Both of them in the first movement are in, and the apparent spontaneity of nuance they bring is captivating... For a live recording the level of Read more accuracy is remarkable, the more so given the range of nuance deployed." -- The Gramophone (6/1989) Read less
