Notes & Reviews:

According to legend, Mozart was so rushed when writing K379 and K454 that he was forced to premiere the pieces with incomplete piano parts. Paying homage to this spirit of spontaneity in a programme of some of Mozart's most beloved chamber works, Petra Mullejans and Kristian Bezuidenhout present a reading of these pieces that recaptures the freshness and volatility of those early performances.

Gramophone Magazine
Müllejans and Bezuidenhout bring a spirit of improvisation to their performance, with many apparently spontaneous ornaments and a general air of freedom.

bbc.co.uk - Charlotte Gardner
Müllejans and Bezuidenhout capture the improvisatory air of the programme in a vibrant, highly expressive performance. Their interpretation has a sense of volatility to it that engenders a marvellous hearing-it-for-the-first-time sensation. Furthermore, there emanates from this recording such a highly developed sense of artistic partnership that it doesn't feel like an exaggeration to say that they play as one
