When it comes to Mozart, Uchida is an unabashed--some would say incorrigible--romantic. But while she can occasionally sound capricious in matters of pacing, articulation, and dynamics, her instincts almost always lead in a felicitous direction. Such is the case with these accounts of the sonatas, recorded between 1983 and 1987. Uchida's approach is unfailingly lyrical, her touch gentle, her tone limpid and bright. Her manner, from one work to the next, may be somewhat undifferentiated, but there is a warmth to her playing that carries the day. --Ted Libbey

The sonatas are very gingerly and delicately played by Mitsuko Uchida. Just fantastic. Her phrasing is terrific and allows for just the right amount of breathing space between repeats and transitions.
The five CDs were in perfect condition as were the box and booklet. They arrived after a completely reasonable time period. Mitsuko Uchida's interpretation was exquisite. And, of course, Mozart ... "Who could ask for anything more?"
Mitsuko and Motzart....a perfect match. You will listen over and over again and only want to hear these pieces again.
