Notes & Reviews:

As one of the great virtuoso pianists of his time, Mozart composed a wealth of piano concertos and sonatas that rank among his most famous instrumental works. Not so well known, however, are the duet compositions he wrote for the instrument and to which this CD is dedicated: they provide evidence of the healthy scene of domestic music-making in existence during the Classical period. Comprising a charming collection of works, the compilation as a whole brims with musicality and includes historically informed performances from Modena and Gregoletto on fortepiano - a beautifully balanced partnership that convincingly argues for the duets' equal standing alongside solo works.
