Hi all! I used to hang here several years ago. For various reasons I haven't been near a piano since then until recently. I'm glad PS is still here!

For a way back to piano playing I used Mozart K280, which I note is absent from the collection of Mozart sonatas here. It is not one of Mozart's most famous works. The outer movements are quite conventional but the middle one is a black hole of song fragments. Enjoy, and all comments are welcome!


Mozart - Sonata No.2 in F major, KV 280 - 1: Allegro assai (4:41)
Mozart - Sonata No.2 in F major, KV 280 - 2: Adagio (7:08)
Mozart - Sonata No.2 in F major, KV 280 - 3: Presto (3:03)

Hello troglodyte and welcome back! Sorry, I remember your username, but not your real name....

Hi Joachim, good to see you back. I was not aware we had hanged you back then :P

Not being around a piano is a lame excuse for not being here... good job we're not going anywhere.

Fine playing, as I remember from you. A bit too dry IMO, the digital sound does it no favors (it IS a digital, isn't it ?). I am not a Mozart expert but I find not much so much to criticize, just things I'd do different. Articulation and rhythms could be a bit sharper in some places, and the Adagio is rather too slow and straitlaced to hold interest. Not entirely your fault, it's admittedly a bit ramshackle, not Wolfgang's best.

This one is on the site - thanks for picking one we did not have yet !

Sorry pianolady (Monica?), where are my manners? I am:

And Chris, glad to hear you are keeping it up! I agree one could do more with this piece but I think I'll leave it for now.

A question, probably a silly one but I have been away too long: if I listen to something from the main site, how can I comment on it?

Joachim

Oh yes, hi Joachim. And you are correct; I am Monica. You have a better memory than I. :oops:

There is no way for commenting on the main site. You can only do that in the forum.
