'The two mature C minor masterpieces on CD 2 – the dark-spirited Fantasia, K475, and the disturbingly dramatic Sonata No. 14, K457 – make an even stronger impact, combining near-contradictory qualities, simplicity and sophistication, searching concentration and relaxed ease of unfolding, in a manner that so many top performers exploring this repertory simply fail to discover, let alone realise.' Max Loppert
