Notes & Reviews:

Legendary pianist Mikhail Pletnev presents dazzling new interpretations of Mozart piano sonatas. Pletnev recorded all four sonatas in one night on a Bluthner concert grand piano. The result is an intensity and intimacy that reveal Mozart works in a new light. "...this is one of today's master pianists, and while his effortless virtuosity cannot fail to draw attention, it is used above all to realize a vision of the music which is unconventional but genuine." -BBC Music Magazine

Gramophone Magazine
The bids fair to being the most provocative Mozart release of 2006, revelatory or exasperating according to taste. Take the opening Allegro of the F major Sonata, K332. Pletnev 'orchestrates' the music with a range of touch and command of colour that few contemporary pianists could equal. The problem for me is that he is reluctant to play four successive bars in the same tempo. The whole movement emerges as a calculated improvisation, each idea minutely, lovingly, sometimes puckishly, characterized.
