This well established duo, consisting of two quite exceptional players, continue their journey through Mozart’s Piano Sonatas on this 2CD set, where a full range of music is offered from two very early ones, K27 and K31, to three of full maturity, including the Sonata in F Major K547.

They span more than 20 years of Mozart’s creative output, (1766-1788) and K547 was the last Violin Sonata he completed.

The Violin Sonatas are not the obvious place to begin when seeking to appreciate Mozart’s greatness. But, in what is volume three of a complete survey of Mozart’s Violin Sonatas, the Tiberghien/Ibragimova duo play with typical understanding, and Hyperion’s recording, from May 2015 is first class.
