Notes and Editorial Reviews

When reviewing an advance copy of the original LP in April 1 reiterated the old belief that both sonatas in the recital were written in Paris in 1778. But according to Erik Smith's note included here, "scientific examination of the paper and handwriting" indicates that K330 was composed in Vienna between 1781-2 and that K333 was "almost certainly" composed in Linz in November 1783. If so, then my apologies.

No need, though, for any modification of remarks made about Uchida herself. In fact, having been compelled to play this record three times over for three different reviews—as well as doing so several more times for my own pleasure—I find my respect for it growing. Not a point of cunning escapes her. Yet
Read more there is never a trace of self-consciousness in her point-making, not even in the heightened intensity of the tragic B minor Adagio. It is Mozart at his purest. The recording itself is excellent however it comes. But as before in this Mozart series, the CD sound is at once fuller-bodied and closer.

-- Joan Chissell, Gramophone [7/1985]
