Notes & Reviews:
Bart van Oort is one of today's foremost fortepiano players, and one who relishes the constant reinvention of works through restored period instruments and copied modern versions. He seeks to present Mozart's complete piano sonatas with the greatest verisimilitude possible, without the "translation" needed when playing a modern grand piano.

The uncredited notes are well done and informative. Oort is a pianist to respect. He phrases well and knows what he is doing. He is also generally free with embellishments. Oort's reasonably decent accomplishment, those pianists will almost certainly give you more satisfaction.
