Tom Pascale's splendid new recording of Mozart's dramatic A minor Sonata KV 310 :

1: Allegro maestoso
2: Andante cantabile con espressione
3: Presto

Yes it is, as usual from Tom. His standards are truly professional and his playing impeccable.
I would have liked just a bit more drama and danger in this of all sonatas, though.

A very good recording and I almost nowadays take that for granted from Tom as he really is an excellent pianist. Well performed both from a musical and technical perspective and a really pleasant listening time of wonderful Mozart music. Thanks for sharing!

How come this sounds more like Beethoven than Mozart?

One of my favorite sonatas and you did it justice. Mozart's music is so very transparent that it's frightning to me to play. I particularly enjoyed the first movement and the difficult slow movement. My personal preference would be for a little less pedal in the Presto, but it's good the way it is too. I always enjoy listening to your quality posts.

Thanks for the kind words. I've always enjoyed playing this Sonata along with anything else Mozart penned in a minor key (which unfortunately isn't a very long list).
