 Beautiful interpretation of Mozart's piano sonatas December 21, 2013 By C. De Leon (HATILLO, PR) See All My Reviews "I have about four sets of Mozart's piano sonatas and a couple of his Fantasías by different pianists. For me, and I am not a musicologist, the most beautiful interpretations are the ones by María Joao Pires and Mitsuko Uchida. Others, may be fine, but for me lack the warmth and emotional --if you like--moving that Maria Joan and Mitsuko give to their playing. I believe that if someone wants to explore Mozart's music as to his piano sonatas and fantasias he/she should begin with purchasing Maria Joao Pires recordings or Mitsuko Uchida's CD's. Both pianists have complete sets of these compositions." Report Abuse
 Pires and Mozart December 1, 2013 By Bevan Davies (Kennebunk, ME) See All My Reviews "Ms. Pires retains an astounding intensity and clarity throughout the set, and just the right amount of sangfroid. My interest was held from first to last. There is none of overly wrought playing of other performers, just warmth and grand style. Very satisfying." Report Abuse
