On paper these sonatas look relatively straightforward for a modestly competent pianist such as myself, but great Mozart playing is the highest level of attainment. Lately he's been returning to Mozart. As with his exquisite Haydn Sonata performances, Brendel's approach is deceptively simple but it belies great artistry. These Mozart performances are intimate, classical, spontaneous and deeply satisfying. He employs no pianistic tricks or interpretive quirks, just gives us the music as close to Mozart's scores as possible. I've loved these sonatas for many years and listened to a fair few performances, and I can't but recommend this disc with the greatest enthusiasm.
