NEW RELEASE "Mozart³" Order N°: or 0009 orlando records by amazon or at WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART sonata in B flat major K 333 sonata in F major K 332 sonata in C major K 330 PianoNews 04-2014: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Piano Sonatas No. 10 KV 330, No. 12 KV 332 and No. 13 KV 333 Susanna Artzt, piano Orlando Records or 0009 (distribution: Naxos) The Croatian-born, Vienna-based pianist Susanna Artzt, who was discovered by Paul Badura-Skoda, is one of the most promising talents of the younger generation of female pianists. Playing with supreme facility and great delicacy of touch, she here performs the Mozart sonatas KV 330, 332 and 333 with lots of imagination and many poignant moments. Fine dynamic nuancing, unhurried tempi, and clear and intelligent phrasing characterise this young woman's playing. The trills effervesce so lightly; and Artzt often holds the final chords right back, as in the opening Allegro of Sonata No. 13 KV 333, leaving a movement almost in suspension the moment it dies away. No caesura seems inappropriate, no ritardando overdone. Just how one would like to hear Mozart. Ernst Hoffmann ________________________________________________________________ Chosen as "CD of the day" by: ________________________________________________________________ Classic CD Susanna Artzt: Mozart Sonatas for Valentine's Day  Susanna Artzt: Mozart Sonatas, Orlando records (dawa) The KV 330s sonatas by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – and rarely have they sounded more graceful and elegant. The Vienna-based pianist Susanna Artzt is highly regarded in this country for her approach to the pieces she plays: thought through to the smallest detail. True to form, in "her Mozart" the ethereal-intellectual element prevails with razor-sharp finesse. And that's how it should be. Nothing flashy, nothing superficial adorns these interpretations. In the B flat major Sonata KV 333, for instance, she changes her narrative style from reserved sentimentality to final joviality, keeping her composure at all times as is proper. The F major Sonata KV 332, with its opening alternation between unconditional major tonality and minor-key dramatics, presents itself to the listener as an airily played succession of variants, with drive right from the start. Enchanting, especially the splendid hunting theme. Equally, in the popular C major Sonata KV 330 the Austrian pianist demonstrates not only her affinity with, but also her aptitude for the Vienna Classics domain. In the effervescent closing Allegretto, Artzt offers a compelling display of sure-handed technique. A worthwhile recording since it's a really loving rendition and one that doesn't strain after effects. _______________________________________________________________ Maurice RAVEL Franz SCHREKER* Frédéric CHOPIN Franz Xaver MOZART* Maurice RAVEL *World première recordings _______________________________________________________________ CLAUDE DEBUSSY LILI BOULANGER ALEXANDER SCRIABIN _______________________________________________________________ Links to youtube: W.A.MOZART sonata in F major K 332, 3rd mov.: Allegro assai F.CHOPIN Nocturne in E flat major, op.9/2 F.Chopin Nocturne in D flat major, op.27/2
