Notes & Reviews:

Fanfare
The so-called "Little" A-Major Sonata (to distinguish it from the composer's penultimate A-Major Sonata, D 959) that fills out the disc is an amiable and enchanting work. I've long had a favorite recording of the piece, and it's the one by Claudio Arrau. There's something about the insouciant innocence of the opening melody, like an easygoing amble down a country lane lined by peaceful meadows, that Arrau captures instantly with a combination of gait, phrasing, and tone. No other pianist has ever made quite the same impression on me... Obviously, the main interest of this release is the trio, and for that the disc is recommended...
