This sparkling recording has immediate appeal in its beauty of tone and well-rounded musicianship. British pianist Warren Mailley-Smith reveals an alternative side of his pianistic armoury in highly-refined renditions of three of Mozart’s masterpieces for the piano: The Sonata in D major K311 the ever-popular Sonata in F major K332 and a moving account of Mozart’s pianist tour-de-force, the tragic Sonata in A minor K310 This highly is individualised and compelling Mozart playing with a great sense of shape and structure. The Turkish Rondo provides some light-hearted respite at the conclusion of the disc.
