Notes and Editorial Reviews

Something about the key of D major seems to trigger off Mitsuko Uchida's adrenalin. The energy level in the Rondo and the earlier of the sonatas here is accordingly high, and...she has the technique and temperament to make musical sense of her chosen tempos... It is the long variation movement concluding the D major Sonata...where Uchida achieves marvels of shading within a steadily maintained basic pulse... B flat major draws more serenity out of Uchida. In the Sonata, K570, her energy is applied in all the right places and her response to the tonal scheme of the first movement development is especially acute. Also to be savoured is the lovely matt finish on the sound which has distinguished this series of recordings... marvellous [and] Read more accomplished...
