    You already know it, the Piano Sonata 11. It's just that they found an original manuscript of it penned by Mozart himself. So it's not new, unknown music.

    Which is good news for pianists because it means that a true urtext version can be printed.

    And here it is. I couldn't embed this easily earlier today, being on my iPad and running all around as usual. This is the way I used to play it myself, without the repeats, why I've selected this version from YouTube.

    As an aside, my future first wife, for whom I played this in 1976, later told me the variation where you see the pianist here crossing her hands at 3:15 was what made her decide to marry me! icon_exclaim.gif Later I used to accompany her when she played her French horn in the 4 Mozart horn concertos.

    The Sonata No 11 in A Major, K.331, is not a technically demanding piece, but the subtleties and nuances are sublime, what makes Mozart Mozart.



    EDIT: And maybe I still can't imbed it. Is embedding still broken here? Can anybody see this? I can see it in Quote, Preview, but not otherwise.

    Thank you for that alternate way to see & hear the sonata. And isn't her performance exquisite?

    My pleasure. I'd never heard her before, know nothing about her. I just went to YouTube and found this "abbreviated" interpretation as I used to play it myself. But I honestly think she gives the late, legendary Alicia de Larrocha a run for her money with this sonata.
