Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Eight of Mozart's divinely inspired Piano Sonatas here receive performances of mercurial inspiration from consummate musician cum virtuoso-wizard Marc-André Hamelin. His four Haydn albums have enthralled - this new Mozart will not disappoint. Two Rondos, a Fantasia, and a decidedly quirky Gigue complete this delightful, specially-priced double album.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2015
His extreme refinement of phrase and dynamics, his endlessly fresh approach to detail and breadth of line can be taken for granted: the first item, the late D major Sonata No. 18 has rarely burst off the page so full of vivacity and muscular energy....It's in slow movements...that a quality of alien sophistication...tends to interpose itself.

Pressler's single CD clearly tells us of his intention to record all the composer's piano sonatas. Pressler, now in his 90s, joins that select group of performers who continue to play with some artistic relevance and respectable technique far into their golden years. The many photographs in the La Dolce Volta booklet show Pressler smiling, all warm and bubbly. He clearly loves this music and his earlier recording - MHS vinyl - was one of the gems of the catalog.
