  • Description

    Angela Hewitt's voyage of discovery through Mozart's piano sonatas is proving a joy. The works sounding newly minted in vital, alert accounts which respect their scale and sensibility while revealing influences of Mozart's orchestral and concerto writing of the period.


    "it is hard to imagine a more joyous and appropriately raucous performance of the famous alla turca finale of K331 or a greater sense of fun in the closing movements of K311 and K332. Where the music is wistful or the harmonies haunting, she finds a special touch without calling undue attention to it." – International Piano


    The Canadian pianist [plays] on one of her beloved Fazioli pianos with the sort of nimble and sensitive articulation that brings this music to life. […] and excellent recital that yields rewards on every listen." – BBC Music Magazine (Performance 5 STARS, Recording 5 STARS)

    "If this first volume is anything to go by, the journey will be a joy." - BBC Music Magazine

    LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN: Piano Sonatas Opp 106 & 111 - CDA68374

    "She gets to the heart of the Sonata's existential journey, carrying us from the spiritual depths towards starlight." - BBC Music Magazine
