Schiff is as always fantastic
This is a delightful album, which is not really surprising given the known talent of Andras Schiff. His playing is not only flawless, but warm and sensitive and biting and dramatic by turns. His way with the Adagio K. 540 and the Rondo K. 511 is especially poignant; the Adagio is as slow as I have ever heard it, but despite the challenges of keeping the line singing at this kind of tempo, Schiff manages it brilliantly. It is also nice that amidst well-known pieces, some lesser-known ones like K. 356 are included. A well-balanced and excellently played album.
