Daniel Barenboim, Mozart Piano Sonata No. 7, K 309

1st movement: Allegro con spirito | 2nd: Andante un poco Adagio | 3rd: Rondo allegretto grazioso

Not much to say – this and Piano Sonata No. 11 have been recent addictions of mine. Barenboim’s dynamics are clearer in this recording than in No. 11, and that matters quite a bit in the second movement especially, as well as for the end of the piece. The first movement is grand and vigorous, establishing an energy that carries throughout the whole.

  1. When I used to play piano…many years ago, I loved playing several of Mozart’s sonatas because they are so full of energy. I could not do them justice as I was never able to play them fast enough.
