Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Turn to Alicia de Larrocha and you are immediately in a more robust, even romantic, world...This Mozart answers deeper needs, springs from deeper motivation. Here are minuets which not only could be danced but feel as though they actually are being danced. Here are fast movements with a real current of energy, shaped with some end in mind other than the shaping itself. There is something special in every movement, but I would single out the first movement of the F major Sonata—one of the most remarkable structures of the entire classical era, it receives a performance fully worthy of its prodigal invention."

-- Gramophone [9/1987]
