I'm sure like me you will have read Fred's review on the page and felt unable to connect his words with a 3-star rating - perhaps he made a slip?!
His words, not the rating, speak true. This is an utterly beautiful recording, combining the expected delicacy of both players with constant imagination and depth of feeling, revealing the lesser-known sonatas to be charged with the full pantheon of Mozart's genius.
A real 5-star recording - and I hope it's the start of a series.

To hear Uchida playing the Mozart Piano Concerti is a sublime experience. Hearing her play almost anything is equally ravishing. However, for me the balance of the instrumentalists on this recording is imperfect. The piano dominates the violin to a displeasing degree. Violin and piano sonatas are not a violin accompanied by a piano- they are duets. When one instrument dominates the other, the experience becomes less than perfect.

Mark Steinberg is the founder of the Brentano Quartet and an ideal partner for our Mitsuko Uchida, who has never let me down. I have her Schubert and Beethoven and only wish I had more time to listen. i also have her Mozart sonatas and the incredible set of the concertos.

Don't believe what others say about the sound on this SACD as I can find no fault with it. I am a very fussy HiFi addict and if they have a problem, then they should look at their set up.

I recommend this recording and all the others I have mentioned. Happy listening.

Once again Mitsuko Uchida excels in the interpretation of Mozart's Sonatas for Violin and Piano. The elegance and delecacy of the performance complimented by the bowing of Steinberg, makes this a must for every Mozart enthusiast!
For those who are able to enjoy the added benefit of the SACD format this is pure delight.

Brilliant 20 July 2005
By JMB1014 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have also reviewed this exceptional recording as a hybrid CD. As might be expected, the sound is amazing. Next to this, listening to even the fine Perlman set on DGG is like watching an old black and white movie from the 1940's next to a modern, color film. The differences don't stop with sound quality, however. Mozart is rendered with passion, nuance and finesse in these delicious performances. Steinberg has also played with the Brentano string quartet, an energetic and rising ensemble. He throws himself into these sonatas with energy and imagination. He also prepared the notes, which, while a tad over-written, are far from the arid stuff one too often encounters. They also are imaginative and reward the time spent contemplating his ideas. There is plenty of food for thought here. Mitsuko Uchida, who has made a reputation with recordings of Debussy and Schubert piano music, not to mention the complete Mozart piano concerti and sonatas, is breaking new ground as an accompanist. She recently enjoyed tremendous success in a recording with Ian Bostridge of Schubert's "Die Schone Mullerin." Here, her talent brings real luster to the playing. I think she has improved noticeably since she made the earlier Mozart recordings. Plainly, she is one of the finest pianists alive. There are of course many fine performances of the Mozart piano and violin sonatas, but this one is special. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Brilliant 19 July 2005
By JMB1014 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mitsuko Uchida has made a name for herself playing all the Mozart sonatas and concerti for piano, as well as Schubert piano works and an underappreciated CD of Schumann's Kreisleriana and Carnaval, among other things. Now she is breaking new ground as an accompanist. After a highly successful recording of Schubert's "Die Schone Mullerin" with Ian Bostridge, Ms. Uchida has essayed a gorgeous set of some of Mozart's more delicious piano and violin sonatas with Mark Steinberg of the Brentano string quartet - an energetic and rising young ensemble. Mr. Steinberg has a number of other recordings to his credit, including Schumann chamber music. He has also prepared the notes for this edition, which are far from the arid, technical remarks one often sees. He may overwrite, but he gives a lot to think about. The recording is lush and sparkling on this Philips hybrid SACD. (You can listen to it on any CD player, however.) There are of course many other competing recordings of Mozart's violin sonatas, but this one is special. The playing is elegant, nuanced and expressive. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Just pick out a sonata and sit back and listen. These are gems of the repertoire and lovingly rendered.

Why release this as SACD? 6 Sept. 2008
By L. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The performances are nice, but the quality of the recording is awful. There's noise (and I don't mean studio noise) in the background, the piano sounds like it's wrapped in a blanket, and the violin sounds far away and muddy. And it's not multichannel. Even a moderately well done CD would put this disc to shame. Waste of SACD technology and my money.

an fantastic pianist with a scratchy violinst 29 Oct. 2007
By M. Zhao - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Uchida is no doubt one of the best Mozart interpreters in the history, and her role in those sonatas is absolutely full of inspiration and elegance.
However, the violinst really damage some part of music. He is very good at soft passages, but everytime when he plays forty, the sound is scratchy and flat, sometimes even rude.
Hope Uchida will record some more mozart duo sonatas with a better violinst.
Imbalanced Duo 12 Jan. 2008
By M. De Sapio - Published on Amazon.com

This recording has good intentions but falls short of success, mainly due to questions of style and instrumental balance. As anyone who has played them knows, these are “sonatas for piano and violin,” in which the violin is a complementary partner to the solo piano. Play these sonatas on the more delicate fortepiano and gut-strung violin of Mozart's day, and the proper balance is achieved naturally; the violin complements the piano without receding into the background. By contrast, play the sonatas with a modern grand piano and the violin too easily becomes overpowered, as it is too often here. Steinberg's playing style only complicates matters. He has pared his violin tone down, tempered the vibrato, and maximized nuance and color; the result is less like traditional “virtuoso” violin playing and more like “period” performance. This approach shows admirable stylistic awareness but sits uneasily with the chosen medium; pitted against the full battery of the grand piano, Steinberg's violin sometimes sounds wispy and ineffectual, sometimes raw and steely as if he is forcing in order to project.

On the plus side, Uchida and Steinberg have succeeded grandly in avoiding “wallpaper music Mozart.” These performances are intensely characterful and full of drama and rhetoric (this is especially true of the dark and enigmatic E minor sonata K. 304). There is much fine musical insight and exciting music making here. It's just that, sonically and balance-wise, these pieces work best with period instruments, or something approximating period instruments. (Beethoven is another matter, and I wouldn't mind hearing these artists in a batch of Beethoven sonatas.) This recording deserves kudos for effort, but sometimes even the finest interpretative ideas can't overcome an intractable medium.
