Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote 18 piano sonatas, completed works, whose authenticity has been asserted. Although classical in terms of compositional means, they point to emotionally infused masterpieces of the Romanticism as far as their expressive factor is concerned. Also formally Mozart afforded himself to slightly deviate from the classical sonata pattern, as each piano sonata he penned is made of three movements instead of four. The Sonata no 5 in G major KV 283 perfectly pictures the joyful state Mozart was in when he was planning to leave Salzburg forever and launch a worldwide career. The Sonata no 7 in C major KV 309, on the other hand, was written when he was in love. Its outer movements are proof of his improvisatory genius, just like the Fantasia in D minor KV 397. The Sonata no 11 in A major KV 331 is, in turn, one of Mozart's most famous masterpieces, with its Andante with variations instead of the first movement and the famous Rondo alla Turca as the third movement. Finally, the Sonata no 17 in B flat major KV 570, a mature work, which Alfred Einstein called "the ideal of the Mozart sonata", crowns the recording.
