W.A. Mozart: Piano sonata KV 533 II. Andante - for Orchestra
For 40 years I have been a lover of Mozart, but not until last year I got to know his maybe most mature piano sonata - KV533 from the "Jupiter" year 1788. I love especially the Andante movement which beautifully combines tender melody with powerfull outburst of passion.

By now, we all know your skills to 'arrange' for classical orchestra. This is in many ways a very special piece of music. It shows the budding romanticism in Mozart. A traditional classical corpus with an almost romantic content. You ware able to capture that spirit in your orchestration without leaving the mozartian path. The sound is very nice as well, but I would prefer a little more space and air in the recording. For the rest, a brilliant arrangement with the early Beethoven close by!
