Mozart / Andrew Manze, Richard Egarr - Violin Sonatas, 1781 download album
Format: SACD, Hybrid, Multichannel, Stereo, Album, Reissue. Composed By – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Fortepiano – Richard Egarr. Violin – Andrew Manze.
In this recording, Andrew Manze's violin is obviously the star, even though Richard Egarr's fortepiano is more than mere accompaniment. The recording has excellent, close, clear sound, and it tends to favor the violin, even making allowances for the fact that the fortepiano is quieter than a modern piano. In the first movement of the Sonata in F major, K. 377, there is quite a bit of trading of melody between the two instruments.
Andrew Manze, Richard Egarr. The violin sonatas recorded here were composed during a pivotal year for Mozart. Richard Egarr has worked with all types of keyboards: he has performed repertoire ranging from fifteenth-century organ intabulations, to Dussek, Schumann and Chopin on early pianos, to Berg and Maxwell Davies on modern piano. He is director of the Academy of the Begijnhof, Amsterdam, and is in great demand both as soloist and as accompanist for many of today’s finest artists. Egarr’s recordings with Andrew Manze also include the violin sonatas of . Rebel, Pandolfi (Gramophone Award, 2000), Handel (Billboard ® Top Classical Album), Corelli (Gramophone Recording of the Month; the Prix Caecilia, 2003), Biber’s Rosary Sonatas (Edison Award, 2005), and Mozart’s Violin Sonatas, dubbed the most stimulating.

The Auernhammer sonatas (. 76, 377, 380) were composed in the almost revolutionary spirit of Mozart's escape from Salzburg serfdom in 1781, when he was kicked out of his court position job into freelance composing and performing in Vienna. Here they are played by two peerless masters of the genre: violinist Andrew Manze and period keyboard player Richard Egarr. Such are their gifts that these scintillating pieces sound at times almost orchestral - quasi-concertos in the subtle interplay of two seasoned virtuosi relishing their continuing partnership. Composed after he settled in Vienna, Mozart's "Auernhammer" sonatas, . 76, 377 and 380, are the first fruits of his freedom from Salzburg serfdom and a sign of his new, revolutionary spirit. Multiple award-winners Andrew Manze (violin) and Richard Egarr (fortepiano) capture the sense of orchestral colour and concerto-style interplay which runs through these works. A rarely-heard fragment, . 03, is included as a delightful bonus.
