South African-born, London resident Daniel-Ben Pienaar is a completist. Recent surveys, both on the concert platform and in the recording studio, include Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, Chopin’s Complete Waltzes, Schubert’s Complete Sonatas, and the complete keyboard works by Orlando Gibbons. He arrives on Avie with another major project in tow: the complete Piano Sonatas by Mozart. An active recitalist and chamber musician, and professor at the Royal Academy of Music, Pienaar has a number of critically acclaimed independent releases under his belt, but this recording represents an uncommon synergy between artist, repertoire and production values. In Gramophone Award-winning producer Jonathan Freeman-Atwood, Pienaar found a special simpatico which he found “profoundly enabling”, resulting in a creative recording process specific in relation to the music in hand.

Pienaar presents the works chronologically over five CDs, illustrating Mozart’s compositional trajectory which represents all of the major stylistic and emotional shifts in his mature career, with the earliest dating from his twentieth year, through his Viennese period, and the final works which were written towards the end of his all too brief life.

                  Editor’s Choice

"He [Pienaar] delivers dazzling fingerwork aplenty in playing that’s fearsomely intelligent, articulate, insightfuland, though very personal, so musically clued-in that tings true to Mozart’s spirit." "...this set blew my socks off"

"...this Mozart, recorded at the Duke’s Hall, in the Royal Academy of Music in 2008 and 2009, strikes me as one of the most completely satisfying surveys of this still undervalued music ever committed to disc..."  *****
