Mozartians, from Haskill to Horszowski

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, November 21, 2013

On this all-Mozart edition of Reflections from the Keyboard, David Dubal shares some of Amadeus' compositions played by the great piano Mozartians.

Clara Haskill kicks off the program with her sensitive interpretation of the first movement from the Piano Concerto No. 27. Haskil's ability to evoke Mozart's original sentiment in this work was due to her extraordinary technical ability and compassion for understanding the music.

Helen & Karl Ulrich Schnabel perform the very balanced Piano Sonata for Four-Hands in D Major. Written by Mozart to be played with his sister, Nannerl, it was composed when he was just 16 years old. Both players have an opportunity to play with the central theme of the piece, occasionally imitating each other.

Other Mozartians featured on this episode are Edwin Fischer as soloist in the Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, where he masterfully incorporates his own cadenzas into the piece. Géza Anda and Mieczyslaw Horszowski are also featured soloists.

Am I being clumsy using the website? Many times, lately when I go to the website either as now from my laptop or from my iPhone,to find out what wonderful thing I am listening to, I can't find it. The playlist doesn't include what is on the air. On Air, just tells me what the overall program is not what is being played.
help!
