Quote from: longears on September 20, 2007, 05:22:01 AMNo. But there are others worth hearing. I'm one of those heathens ('round here) who likes Uchida. I rather like what I've heard of Brendel's latest recordings. Soon there'll be posts glorifying Klien, et al. Listen to what you like. And listen to others to broaden your tastes.

Quote from: Mark on September 20, 2007, 05:25:13 AMYes, we've had the Uchida vs Wurtz argument round here before. I wonder what interpretive differences distinguish the two?
Quote from: George on September 20, 2007, 05:33:09 AMDo you feel like you need more?
Quote from: George on September 20, 2007, 05:34:15 AMWhat's are your favorite movements in the sonatas?
Quote from: Mark on September 20, 2007, 05:40:27 AMNot necessarily. Just wondered if I might be missing something.I'm rather fond of Nos. 5, 6 and ... 11, I think? Don't recall, exactly. Been a while since I played them, so I'm spinning a few now.
Quote from: George on September 20, 2007, 05:57:37 AMSince I have four versions of K 457, I have decided to upload the finales and will soon post the link here.The four pianists are Richter, Klein, Eschenbach and Uchida.
Quote from: Mark on September 20, 2007, 06:07:36 AMIt's criminal, I know, but I do like these works on in the background while I'm writing. They help me stay focused.
Quote from: Larry Rinkel on September 20, 2007, 06:04:52 AMRichter sounds intruiging. I have to admit, though, that with a few exceptions I find the Mozart piano sonatas among his least interesting works (totally unlike the concertos), and on the few occasions I want to encounter many of them, I'd just as soon play them myself.
Quote from: dtwilbanks on September 20, 2007, 06:19:24 AMThere's nothing in the Mozart sonatas that makes me want to run out and buy more. Of course, I don't listen to them very often. Not when I have Alkan, Field, Chopin, Schumann and Beethoven around.
Quote from: George on September 20, 2007, 06:22:28 AMI can say that Mozart fills a spot in my listening that no other composer can fill. For that reason, I like to have a number of interpretations of the works that I like. The Sonatas (and the violin sonatas) are among these works.
Quote from: dtwilbanks on September 20, 2007, 06:25:46 AMI must not have that particular spot. Bach fills my spot. Uh...
