Notes and Editorial Reviews

Barenboim, while keeping his playing well withing scale in its crisp articulation, refuses to adopt the Dresden china approach to Mozart's Sonatas...Barenboim's voyage of discovery brings out their consistent freshness, with the orchestral implications of some of the allegros strongly established.

-- Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs [2003/4 Edition]

"[Daniel Barenboim's] crispness of detail and clarity of partwriting and texture are everywhere admirable, his sheer nimbleness and dexterity are often a joy, and there is no suspicion that he is ever using precision or lapidary elegance to miniaturize or prettify the music: there is plenty of fire and expressiveness here, a real comprehension of the
Read more stature of such big works as the Fantasia and Sonata, K475 and 457, and a sustained concentration in some of the more profound slow movements that gives a fine sense both of bar-by-bar discovery and of a measured unfolding, unhurried progress towards a clearly perceived destination. Nor is variety of mood neglected, the simple gravity of the middle movement of K570 giving way to a lovely cantabile central section and to a dreamily sensuous continuation, the almost Schubertian Trio of K331 needing no tempo change to mark it off from the relaxed and understated Minuet."

-- M.E.O., Gramophone [3/1986]

 Crisp, yet soulful November 26, 2012 By Claudette L. (Hampstead, NH) See All My Reviews "The interpretation of the Mozart piano sonatas is exciting, rich in tonal color, good tempi throughout. Mr. Barenboim is a true artist when it comes to Mozart." Report Abuse
 Notes from the past October 9, 2012 By Alan T. (Corinella, Victoria) See All My Reviews "I can remember learning some of the easier sonatas back in the days I was able to play the piano. It has been a joy to work my way through the first disks. Just before I saw your request for a review I was planning to put on another of the CD's in the set as I have the house to myself for 4 hours." Report Abuse
