For this week’s free download we’re offering a track from Noriko Ogawa’s first recording of works by Mozart – the opening movement of Piano Sonata No. 10, K330.
Her new recording, on the BIS label, brings together Sonatas Nos 10, 11 & 12, all of which were probably written as useful pieces for teaching and as very popular pieces to sell to the domestic market – young ladies learning to play the piano in their own homes.
Our critic Erik Levi gave the disc four stars in a recent issue of BBC Music Magazine and said: ‘Throughout this warmly engineered release, Ogawa sustains a wonderful lightness of touch utilising the pedal very sparingly and ensuring that all textures are crystal-clear… these performances are extremely enjoyable.’
